Located at just 3 km from Vashi at Sector 8, Navi Mumbai, Sagar Vihar is very popular amongst locals. It is a mini seashore with a beach where you will love to jog, take a walk or simply enjoy quiet moments at sundown. The beach is not an expansive stretch, nor does it see waves scattering over it. It is a charming water-body that offers the calmth of nature to refresh your mind.
The Garden and Flamingoes
Sagar Vihar Garden was formerly known as Veer Savarkar Udyan and faces the Vashi Creek. The garden is neatly done with multiple varieties of flowering plants and trimmed grass, where people love to watch life pass by as they take a break. Photographers love this spot as the sunset is truly intriguing. The view of the Mankhurd bridge and beautiful pink flamingoes make the visit worthwhile on early mornings.
Lonely or serene?
Some find this spot a little aloof while other find it serene. Couples find it a suitable place to spend quality time with each other. Benches are fixed in various spots at Sagar Vihar offering comfortable seating to visitors. Overall, a good spot to get away from the city madness and recoil in nature. Slowly gaining momentum with increasing number of visitors, vendors have opened street food stalls to feed hungry tummies.
Weekends see a lot more people flocking Sagar Vihar to find their moment. With more locals crowding in to escape from routine, various activities like horse riding, boating, toy train etc, have been started to help people enjoy their evenings
Although the spot is maintained very well, and trash cans being placed in every nook and corner, at times people litter the place which is a nuisance. It would be really helpful if citizens contributed towards keeping Navi Mumbai clean and made use of trash cans.
Navi Mumbai is blessed with abundant nature. And Sagar Vihar is one such place which is its pride. Let’s enjoy the different shades of sunset and clean surroundings while still in the city.
