Velas Turtle Festival from Pune on 27th 28th April 2019

Velas Beach - वेळास समुद्र किनारा ®

Velas Turtle Festival Velas is a small fishing village on the western coast of Maharashtra. About 220 km away from Mumbai, a little over a hundred houses on the coast of the Arabian Sea. It is that time of the year again - when a tiny grey head pokes out of the golden sand and takes a breath of the fresh salty air of the Arabian Sea. It is a culmination of a lengthy process, which started when, under the cover of darkness, its mother emerged out from the rolling waves to lay her heap of[masked] eggs on the sandy beach.
