Aksa beach is located along the mangroves near Malad. The entire mangroves stretch from Versova to Malad is only accessible via a ferry that you can cross over at Versova jetty to reach Madh.
For a longer route, one can continue further from Marve by taking a ferry across to Manori and then cycle via Gorai to Uttan. One of the favourite cycling routes for the city!
We crossed over from Versova to Madh on the ferry
Then we rode from Madh towards Aksa beach along this road that runs along the coast
We arrived at Aksa beach at the crack of dawn
We parked our cycles on the beach and went for a walk to enjoy the sand
We saw this horde of crows feeding on leftover fish from the morning's catch by the local fishermen
A smart dog watched us, wondering if we will feed him
The sun started painting the clouds with its morning glow
We rode our cycles along the beach, feeling the cool sea breeze
I'm so lucky to have kids who enjoy the outdoors! That's Shimul, my daughter.
And that's Rohan, my son!
We rode along the beach for a while and then headed back from Marve back to Andheri
