Apart from the beaches and water sports, there is another reason to visit seaside town Alibaug and it’s something that will catch your attention. The folks at Mandwa Port have started a cool, new space called Beach Box, which you cannot miss — it’s right at the Mandwa jetty, next to the recently opened yet already famous restaurant, Boardwalk by Flamboyante.
The beach box is a concept that is prevalent in Dubai, San Francisco, and London that is, having retail and food stores inside shipping containers. Taking old recycled shipping containers, Beach Box is a rather exciting new open-air area in Mandwa right in front of the beach. There’s plenty to eat, drink, shop and other fun events like gigs, movie screenings and many more.
It has an amphitheatre, surrounded by 21 pop-up stores painted in various bright colours. The space has been done up in a quirky manner with vibrant decor elements that give it a super positive vibe. The place transforms once the sun goes down, with live performances, open mic events, amazing workshops, and lots more.
