The districts of Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg of Maharashtra are Enquiry Form formed by a narrow belt of low land lying between the Arabian Sea and the Sahyadris. Though rugged and hilly as a whole, the districts which are more commonly known as the Konkan, have many characteristic features. Near the Sahyadris the valleys are more open and the hills rugged than towards the western sea coast where they are more or less flat plateaus made barren in some parts by a capping of laterite rock, cleft by narrow steep-sided valleys and ravines through which rivers and streams find their way from the Sahyadris to the sea. The coast is almost uniformly rocky and dangerous in most places with a few sandy shores. The Konkan coast, which is dominated by rocky shores has many geomorphological features like the dunes, ripple marks, micro drainage patterns during low tides, wave cut caves, platforms, cliffs, gorges, honeycomb weathering, etc. The coastal areas are home to some of the richest, most diverse and fragile of natural resources.
