It is Sky Watch Friday again! Or there are 40 minutes left of it actually! The day went in a whirl. One thing is certain, I do not like to pack. We are leaving for a short mountain trip tomorrow and as usual nothing is packed. But then we are going in the evening. So there is time to do a sky watch post quickly. While I was thinking about the post, I realized that I do so many mountain collections but I hardly ever do beach collections for Sky Watch. So I am setting it right today. The first picture in this post is from the Mandvi Beach in Gujarat.
The Lone Tree, Havelock Beach, Andaman Islands, India
Isn’t it a thing of beauty? Havelock was a memorable destination for me. The first where I went scuba diving. Even otherwise, it is stunningly beautiful. This was just behind my hotel, Sea Shell. I remember that they used to put coconut water in water containers! And what fun it was. I will also remember Havelock because it was the place where my camera met a very watery grave!
Heysham Beach, Lancashire, UK
I visited Heysham and Morecambe because they were close to Lancaster where I used to go for work. UK is the only place I have visited where beaches are cold! All my walks were done wrapped up lightly even in what they call summers! But those were pretty walks!
Koggala Beach, Sri Lanka
I saw a stilt fishing photograph on the cover of a HR text-book first! And then I went to Koggala where stilt fishing is done. It is quite touristy. The fisherman ask for money upfront if you wish to take pictures. But I still enjoyed it a lot.
Byndoor Beach, Coastal Karnataka, India
I saw the beauty of coastal Karnataka on my recent trip to the region in May. This was also a first, when I saw sea meeting the backwaters.
Maafushi Beach, Maldives
My most exotic beach vacation has been to Maafushi Island, Maldives. It was stunningly beautiful. I wish I get to go back to that enchanted land once again!

Thank you so much Rupam.
Beautiful shots. I wish I was in one of that location.
😀 I also want to be on these locations again!
Wow, what a great collection of photographs. The Maldives island is my favorite but they are all excellent, especially the stilt fishing. I guess I’d of paid to take a photograph.
Yogi, 😀 thank you for the vote of confidence!

Nice collection but I was expecting more beaches and specially Gokarna beaches… A series of five beautiful beaches famous for moon night treks and day treks along the beach…
I have not been to Gokarna yet 😀
I was going through your blog and I loved your concept and the whole idea of clicking the various scenic beauty of India. And you have truly captured the essence of it in your photographs. The little anecdotes make it even better and I could connect with your travel stories.
Maria these clicks are from various parts of the world 😀 Thank you so much for your kind words.
