Hedvi Beach is not just a sandy beach here nature has created an amazing work of art with rocks and water Brahman Ghal which you will not find anywhere else. Brahman Ghal is a rare natural phenomenon where the continuous growth of rocks near the sea has created a ravine about 20 feet deep and 1-2 feet wide in a patch of black rock. Sea water seeps in, and at high tide, water rises from rocks 20 to 30 feet high. This beauty of nature creates milk bubbles during high tide when the sea water flows into the ghats. The idol of Hedvi Ganesha is known as 'Shri Dashbhuja Lakshmi Ganesh', meaning Lord Ganesha with ten hands. The idol, made of pure marble, is said to have been made in Kashmir. You can see Nagraj sitting on the neck of the idol and Goddess Lakshmi sitting on the left thigh. Ganapati holds in his hand the trident, bow, mace, wheel, conch and ax. He also has a lotus in his hand, a broken tooth, rice and modak. This symbolic idol of the caring and protecting Ganapati is seldom seen anywhere else. Although the majority of the people who come here are pilgrims who gather in and around the historic temples, many others also come to enjoy the scenic and tranquil views of the beach.
