Anjarle is a small port village nestled on the coastline of Ratnagiri District which is famous for its 2 kms long stretch of white sand surrounded with Palm Trees, Kadyavarcha Ganpati and Konkani lifestyle. After the on going conservation taken at Velas, an initiative was taken by Village Gram Panchayat, Sahyadri Nisargamitra, Kasav Mitra Mandal-Anjarl, Nirmal Sagar Tat Abhiyan and Maharashtra Forest department to conserve Olive Ridley Turtle by protecting their eggs which are found at Anjarle shoreline.
