Narali Pournima is a Hindu festival celebrated mainly by the fishing community of Maharashtra.

Narali pournima falls on the full moon day of the Shrawan month and it marks the end of monsoon season in Maharashtra.

The fishing activities that are closed during monsoon, begin from this day. The fishermen offer coconut to the sea to worship Lord Varun (sea God) and gain blessing for their safety.

Narali pournima coincides with Kajri Purnima, Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi Purnima.

A special sweet coconut rice is prepared on Narali Pournima known as "Narali Bhaat".
