Cycle ride to Aksa beach

Cycling Dec 29, 2012

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!
