The picturesque Versova Beach is set North of Juhu Beach in Greater Mumbai district of Maharashtra. Versova Beach is among Mumbai's hot attractions.

You may plan a trip to Versova Beach at practically anytime, however we advice you to make a trip between September and May, when the humidity is low and the cool see breeze gives a pleasant respite from the general heat and grime of the city life.

Among the most fascinating scenes of Versova Beach is the time when fishermen are ready to barge into the Sea to get their first catch, all armed with their fishing nets and lines. The whole ambience gives a surreal feel and can tempt you to go take some snaps of such magical moments. And of course if you are among those who love fishes, then buying fishes could be a great shopping experience as well, with the first catch for your taste buds.

The Arabian Sea on Versova Beach could be slightly dangerous too, since it forms treacherous whirlpools that can suck fishing boats and trawlers. So it's better to be aware while planning to go swimming in the Sea. During High tides the whole of Versova Beach gets submerged.
