KASA KHADAK TO KHANDERI ISLAND, ALIBAG
Khanderi (official name Sardar Kanhoji Angre Island) is a small island located 5 kilometers off the coast of Maharashtra (off Thal and Kihim) and approximately 20 kilometers south of the city Mumbai. Khanderi, along with its sister fort Under (Jaidurg), formed the major fortification along the Maharashtra coast, with the former falling under the control of Shivaji Maharaj and the latter falling under the control of his opponents, the Siddis. Khanderi and Under were both built in the 16th century. A pair of high hills, one facing north and the other facing south, characterize the island’s topography. The islands of Under and Khanderi were uninhabited for a long period of time. It was home to two wells for supplying water to the forces within and a temple dedicated to Sri Betal.

This was the first of four new swim channels he created in Mumbai Bay, and it was the first of its kind in the world. This was a high-risk event because no one else had the foresight to swim through this channel. These waters are well-known for their choppy waters and windy weather conditions, and they are no exception. According to locals, the water surrounding Khanderi Island is the trickiest and most dangerous in the entire western coastal area of India. There was a lot of stress but we managed it, and as a result of the rough weather and unpredictable water currents in that region, many large ships and boats have gone down.
