The famous Kalamb Beach farmhouse is there for you to stay and give best food. The best thing about visiting Kalamb Beach Mumbai is just to have some breathtaking views of the nature. All with this, I would suggest that crime rate around the less crowded areas is a little higher in India. Hence, be careful while going to Kalamb Beach alone. Also, don’t go there during dark time as it can be dangerous for your safety.
