        positive review  HikerWolf-Alibaug Rock Beach camping I just walked in to the camp site, as it was very beautifully lit and nice music was being played. The hosts were super nice and accommodating. It was situated just next to the beach. The property was very nicely setup to accommodate almost 50 + ppl. They had live music, BBQ , DJ ,movie screening and moreover the hosts were so cool they made sure everyone had fun. This is altogether different experience, you meet new people, enjoy all this activities together.
