Maharashtra is taking a big leap to boost tourism in Sindhudurg, a destination located along the Konkan coast, between Vengurla and Malvan. Although the reward one gets from enjoying the destination after an eight-hour drive from Mumbai or Pune are worth the time and effort, the Maharashtra state government will soon launch the Sindhudurg airport at Chipi-Parule to make it more time-saving and convenient for tourists to visit the place.

Reportedly, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has declared that flights to Sindhudurg will start from January 2021.

Sindhudurg airport will be a gateway for people to easily access the Konkan region, noted for its pristine beaches, temples and forts. Of course, a lot of homestays and hotels operate in the region for the comfort of tourists.
