About Kashid Beach:
Kashid is popular mainly because of its white sand, blue seas, green mountains, paddy fields, and rivulets. Kashid has a 3 km stretch of beach tucked in between two rocky hillocks with Casuarina groves all along the seashore. This is by far the best beach in this part of the Konkan region and, though absolutely deserted on weekdays, the town can attract its fair share of week-end holiday makers.
About Phansad Bird Sanctuary:
The sanctuary represents a coastal woodland ecosystem of Western Ghats, which makes the habitat very rich and offers a serene experience to visitors.Extending over an area of about 53 sq. kilometers, the sanctuary supports the panther, sambar deer, wild boar, barking deer and hyena. The main attraction of the Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary, however, is the beautiful Giant Indian Squirrel, but given its shy disposition, catching a glimpse is not an easy prospect.
The Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary is regarded as a birders paradise and includes a large number of species like the Malabar Pied Hornbill, Black Eagle, Yellow Footed Green Pigeon, Pompadour Green Pigeon, Forest Wagtail, Asian Paradise Flycatcher, Brahminy Kite, Spotted Owlet, Golden Oriole, Iora, Plum-headed Parakeet, Emerald Dove, Shikra and many more. Another fascinating feature about the sanctuary is that around 71 species of butterflies are found here.
