Devbag is a peninsula with the sea on one side and the Karli river on the other. Devbaug Sangam where the river meets the sea is one of the most picturesque locales in Malvan. With a long picturesque coastline and beaches extending from Achare in the north to Devbag where Salgaonkar Beach Resort is located in the south, Malvan is blessed with some of the best beaches in Maharashtra. Tarkarli beach 5 kms north of Devbaug is arguably one the most picturesque beaches. A turqoise blue sea with the Sindhudurg fort looming in the horizon makes a sunset at the Tarkarli beach truely unforgetable.
