We all
So here is my experience about Kashid beach.
3 of us (me, nilesh, amit) started our journey from Pune other 3 were from Mumbai & 3 from Panvel.So we 3 started our journey by taking Alibagh bus (Morning 5:30am) from shivajinagar - Pune.

After 4 hrs at 9:45 am we reached Alibagh & then after that we had some breakfast with 3 more friends from Panvel. Then we took bus for Kashid at around 11:30am & we reached Kashid at 12:45pm. We realised that we are at Kashid beach which was 2kms away from our Hotel :p so we walked till hotel. Finally at around 1pm we reached hotel, then we all took shower (obviously not together :p ) & then had nice lunch. Actually we hired 1 bunglow with 3 double bedrooms & had plenty of space around.

At Around 4pm we packed our bags for Kashid beach & we were there till 4:30. Immediately we went for swimming then after an hour we had lilttle snaks from small beach shops. Again we had some swimming & then some of us had few beers. Finally at around 8:30pm we again reached back to Hotel. Then we had nice dinner & me,amit,pritesh,parag,bharat went to beach :) & spent some time there & after returning went to sleep.

Next morning we again wento beach but just to roam around. We had long tour along the beach then had some snaks. Finally at around 12am we reached hotel paid the bills & started our return journy. Thats how we all enjoyed a nice weekend at Kashid.
