Default Re: Mumbai to Goa : Route Queries

Hi everyone,

I am planning a trip to Goa from Thane and want to take the NH17 route because of the beautiful driving experience. Wanted to know if anyone has recently traveled thorough this route and the current road conditions. Planning to start from Thane at 4 AM so that can reach GOA by 4:30 – 5 in the evening.

Please suggest if any detour can be done. I have one day in spare in hand. For information – I drive a Duster AMT

Hi Friends

I am planning to drive to Goa in my XUV 500 , we are two couples and a kid of 8 years,

My wife has nausea problems. But not so severe in monsoons.

Can you suggest us a good route

We can try one route for scenic beauty
Come back via another for ride comfort and straight roads.

I don’t want lot of potholes as XUV is not so comfortable on bad roads.
Compared to my future dream suv tata HEXA

We are planning for a minimum 2nights stay at goa.
Also some good stops for pure veg meals in pure veg restaurants.

Also if u know a exceptional overnight stay we can do one extra night in between mumbai and goa.

We are planning to start from Mumbai on 12th Aug and start from Goa on 15th Aug

Thank you and regards

Vishal Pandit

You have chosen the most busy dates of the year to travel by road.
One at a time -
Stay - Chiplun The Riverview is a fantastic property right in the middle of Goa and Bombay. Ideally should be done on the return leg of the trip.
That would mean Bom-Pune-Kolhapur-Amboli-Sawantwadi-Goa route to go to Goa.

Please book all rooms now to avoid hassles later.

Hope this helps and have a good trip.

Try avoiding coastal highway NH-66 (NH-17), instead take Mumbai- Chennai NH-48 (NH-4) till Kolhapur or Sankeshwar and then take Ajara for hitting Amboli route. Amboli ghat goes to Sawantwadi, take that road for Goa (You will hit NH-66 at Malgaon).

I recommend this route since it is the fastest one with broad straight roads until Tavandi (2+2 and 3+3 lane national highway). So no issues such as nausea or bad roads for XUV. Two lane routes are between Sankeshwar and all the way till Goa but quite scenic.

Please check this route on google
Mumbai - Kolhapur - Sankeshwar - Ajara - Sawantwadi - Malgaon - Banda - Panaji

Recommending same route back since due to heavy rains NH-66 may get blocked at places.
