Nandgaon beach: Water sports
Birla temple: Recommended, one of the best temples around
SiddhiVinayak temple (Nandgaon)
Phansad Sanctuary: For a glimpse of wildlife
Murud Janjira Fort and Revdanda Fort: For the history lovers, the adventurous can hire a trip to the Murud fort through the sea
Amboli and Phansad dam: Not well know but worth a visit after you are done with the popular attractions
