Dandi Beach

Dandi Beach is perhaps one of the most prominent landmarks in Surat as it was a significant site for one of the largest freedom struggles in India. In 1930, Mahatma Gandhi undertook the salt satyagraha march protesting against the British salt laws. He walked from Ahmedabad with a group of followers that kept growing at each stage of his protest march. At Dandi, he plucked a handful of saline mud and seawater, producing salt in protest against the British monopoly on salt production. This simple act got much national support and is credited with breaking the back of the British Raj in India. 

Today, the beach is a popular weekend picnic spot and invites visitors to relax in beautiful surroundings. It is among the cleanest beaches in the country that makes for a great picnic spot.
