    My stay in Mumbai is going to be for a week, and I would be traveling to different places regarding work. Most of my stops will be at Virar Station, and I would like to know how to reach Arnala beach from Virar station.

    If I need to get a bus please mention what bus I would need to get and whether it would be easy getting an auto from the station to the beach.

    You can reach Arnala beach from Virar Station either by bus or taxi. The distance from Virar Station to Arnala beach is around 9km, so walking is not really an option.

    If getting a taxi from Virar Station to Arnala beach it will take you 8 minutes to reach the beach. A one-way taxi would cost you anything between Rs200 - Rs300.

    If you want a cheaper option then opt for gettings a bus from Virar Station to Arnala beach. The time it would take you to reach the beach on a bus would be roughly around 55 minutes, and it would cost you between Rs10 - Rs40.
    You would need to get the bus number 305, and there would be a bit of walking involved when you would need to get the bus from Virar Station and when you need to reach Arnala beach.
