History of Chorwad Beach

Many decades ago, Mohabat Khan, the Nawab of Junagarh chanced upon the sleepy seaside hamlet of Chorwad and saw its potential as an ideal summer resort cooled by fresh sea breezes from the Arabian Sea-an escape from the clammy, energy-snapping heat of Junagarh (also Junagadh).
