Ganpatipule is situated along the western coast of Maharashtra 375Km south of Mumbai, along the Konkan coast. A small village, its clean, lovely beaches attract the beach fanatics and the spiritually - inclined alike. Ganpatipule is one of the 'Ashta Ganapatis' (eight Ganpatis) of India and called the 'Paschim Dwar-Dewata' (Western Sentinel God).
The red and pink well maintained, picturesque temple is located right on the silver beach. An aura of silence and tranquility pervade the temple compared to some of the busier and more commercial temples of the country.
According to the local folklore, the Hindu god - Ganapati, taking umbrage by a remark made by a native lady, moved to Pule (a few kilometers ahead of the town) from his original abode of Gule. Thus the region was named Ganapatipule.
A clean and breathtaking clear-water beach is one of the main attractions for tourists, along with the Ganapati temple. The Hindu temple is reconstructed in special Rajasthani style and look, and attracts thousands of devotees from all parts of Maharashtra, other states and foreigners. MTDC resorts also offer bamboo house stay, tents and small boats for rides. Maharashtrian pickles, seafood, coconut and mangoes are some of the gustatory delicacies in this town.
The Ganapatipule is very popular for weekend tourists from in and around Ratnagiri district.

Water Sport facility available (Except during monsoon).
