The haunted beach of Gujarat – Dumas Beach

“Kuch Din to Gujaro Gujarat Me”.

I guess you all must have heard this ad campaign by Amitabh Bachchan. Gujarat is India’s westernmost state and has numerous sacred sites like the Dwarka and Somnath temple. But there is also a beach in Gujarat which is one among the Most Haunted Places in India!

I am talking about the “Dumas Beach.” Dumas Beach is an urban beach along the Arabian Sea, located 21 kilometers southwest of the City of Surat in Gujarat.

If you have ever googled about the top haunted places in India then you must have come across the name of Dumas beach in that list. Ranked at number one of the most haunted places in Gujarat, the Dumas Beach is not a place for the soft-hearted.

Generally, Bhangarh and Kuldhara (in Rajasthan) and Agrasen ki Baoli in Delhi is ranked top in the list of haunted places but Dumas beach is equally spooky!

About the Dumas Beach

Dumas beach is one of the premium tourist spots in Gujarat but as it starts getting dark, people leave the place for the better good.  While this beach must look like God’s home during the day time, it becomes devil’s paradise after the sun goes down.

And let me add that those who tried to challenge the beach by staying overnight, they either never came back or had the worst experiences to share!

The story behind the mysterious Dumas Beach

The Dumas beach is famous for two things, one for its black fine sand and other for being haunted! According to the stories of the local people, there was a time when this beach was used as a burial ground by the Hindus. So it is believed that the spirits never left this place and they make this place haunted. The local people believe that the sand of the beach is black because of the amount of ash created by burning the dead which got mixed with white sand of the beach and turned dark in shade.

In the daytime, the Dumas beach is a paradise in Surat but there is some negativity that surrounds the place. According to some reports, a number of paranormal activities have been reported in the area after the moon shows up. If reports are to be believed, several tourists and locals have gone missing from this haunted beach. Also, once a man was found dead on the beach with his tongue popping out. And there is absolutely no one who could explain the reason behind all these spooky activities!

The locals also claim that sometimes they hear weird sounds coming from the beach like people laughing and someone crying, even when there’s not a single soul present.
