Nariyal Paani, Alibaug, Raigad District of Maharashtra

Nariyal Paani (Coconut water) is happening soon so you best get a move on.

Held at a popular Mumbai seaside getaway, Nariyal Paani was conceived by an architect and cafe owner who wanted a chilled out affair.

Set in coconut groves by the sea with a line up that’s been designed for all ages, it’s a winning formula that’s now in its third year.

To see what’s happening have look at the website.

Mandawa’s painted havelis in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan come to life with the sound of music in January too.

30 artists offer up a classical and contemporary mix at two venues over 4 days.  There’s also arts and crafts, workshops and loads more happening at the festival (exploring royal stables, horse riding and ripping it up dirt biking or sand surfing).

Taalbelia is on from the 26th – 29th January.  Find at more at the festival website.
