The Konkan in all its rural glory can be seen in Malvaan. Malvaani’s were the Maratha soldiers of Shivaji. It is also the location for the Maratha bastion of Sindhudurg.
However, since the wars and kingdoms have ended, they are now dwellers of the region with occupations such as farming or fishing. Now Malvan is also becoming famous as a Dolphin or Deo Massa sighting destination as well as the snorkeling capital of Konkan Maharastra. Shiroda is actually a fishing village and has pristine beaches. A number of villages are located enroute some of which also have old Dutch influences such as houses and churches around.
