Any beach location will be humid.

I am looking for a different location than the usual one. Need help from all you guys to plan this trip. We have already covered entire konkan, all places near Pune, all places between
Is Goa included in your list of entire Konkan covered? Even if yes, does not matter. One awesome place which is alive. You may want to look at it (again!). Evenings are always fun.

Not only is it the only known impact crater in basalt rock on the whole earth but it has also many ancient temples around and near it.Check out the wiki link for photos of temples.

It has been know to us since ancient times (oldest reference - Skanda Puran)
Imagine which all mythological and historic people have been there! For all you know you might end up standing exactly in the same place where Shivaji himself stood (or at a stretch of imagination even Lord Ram! Actually not that far fetched considering Ram, Sita Laxman have been known to have stayed at Panchavati, Nashik. Also Lonar would have been part of Dandakaranya)

Pune - Lonar ~381M (as per google maps)
MTDC Lonar resort seems to have a reasonably high rating. Google should help you out with other options

Disclaimer: I have personally not been here but it is on my todo list for quite some time.
Thank you for the suggestion. I have already been to Lonar this December. Plus there is nothing much to see around except Ellora, Ajantha which we have covered lot of times.

It's on my bucket list too.. just not in summer. Go towards the sea.. Ganpatipule or thereabouts.
Thank you for the suggestion. We have covered Ganpatipule number of times and it will humid towards sea in those days.

This trip will be particularly exciting for the family as you can visit Strawberry orchards and eat freshly pluck strawberries.
Thank you for the suggestion but again Panchagani and Mahabaleshwar are covered number of times as well.

Thank you for the suggestion and I haven't been to Goa. Will that be too humid as my experience with beach in summer is always humid.

I think Goa inspite of humidity is fun. Laze in a hotel pool during the day and enjoy the beach in the evenings! Its all about chilling. I was once there during May and absolutely enjoyed the whole period of stay.
