Tarkarli is a long stretch of beach which extends from Devbaug beach to its south to Malvan jetty to its north across Wayiri, Dandi beach etc. Due to the popularity of Tarkarli beach all these beaches are also considered as Tarkarli beach by the tourists!
Tarkarli shot into fame after M.T.D.C started the beach resort in Tarkarli and declared Tarkarli as one of the premiere beach destination in Maharashtra. The backwaters of Karli river running almost parallel to the beach imparts Tarkarli a surreal beauty.
Located off the coast of Devbaug about a kilometer from the resort, Tsunami island is the hub of all the water sports activities in Tarkarli. Devbaug sangam where Karli backwaters meets the sea is the most picturesque spots near Shripad Beach Resort.
