Brief History

The Mandvi beach is a stretch of golden-brown sand located at the southernmost point of Gujarat's Kutch district. It is located south of the main intersection, Bhuj. The beach is located in the same town as its name, which historically had a busy port serving India. The historic part of the town still has the fort wall from the former trading centre. The serene beach is a welcome addition for visitors to the area. Evenings are especially wonderful because of the sunset and all the activity from snack vendors to balloon vendors.

At the estuary where the river Rukmavati meets the Gulf of Kutch, the Maharao of the princely state of Kutch founded this port town. It was a significant commercial hub during the time. To house the Kharva families, who were known for their expertise in crafting wooden ships, the settlement was constructed inside of a fortified stronghold. The mid-fifteenth century saw the construction of the defensive fortifications. Even though the fortress is no longer very large, parts of it can still be seen.
