#1 of 7 in Things to do in Mandvi
Explore luxurious sandstone pavilions and dip into the water of a royal beach at Vijay Vilas Palace, a huge Indo-European style complex serving as the former summer palace of the rulers of Kutch. Spanning 182 ha (450 ac), the sea-beach resort features exquisite late colonial architecture and a privately owned beach. Built between 1920 and 1929, the complex was designed as a royal guest camp, with tent accommodation on the beach. Admire the palace's elaborate, British-style wooden furniture and European interiors as you explore. The golden-sand beach offers a thatched restaurant with sweeping views of the ocean and a volleyball court. You can also arrange camel rides along the beach and boat tours.
