Economy
Kihim mostly thrives on Tourism[3][4] throughout the year with November to May being peak months. Farming is another major occupation found here. Rice is the main produce of the area like majority of the Konkan region. Coconut and Betel nut is also produced on a large scale.

Major attraction in Kihim is its sandy beach. Though Kihim was once known as a "Bird Watchers' Paradise", very few exotic species can be still found in the areas having dense cover of trees. Variety of butterflies are also found here.

On a clear day Colaba area of Mumbai is visible from Kihim Beach on the north western side.
Tourist facilities here mainly consist of "Bed and Breakfast Schemes" run by the locals under the regulations of Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation, which acts as a governing body for Tourism throughout the State of Maharashtra. One can easily find average quality lodging and boarding facilities throughout the village, except for the month of December when advance bookings may be required. For restaurants, one has to go to a nearby locality known as Chondhi.

Other nearby attractions include the Kihim Pond, Kankeshwar Temple near Mapgaon and Karmarkar Museum in Sasawane.

Kihim is also a home to various temples including a rare Kalbhairav Temple. Alibag is located approximately 11 km south of Kihim.

Administration
Kihim acts as a Group Gram Panchayat for few small villages like Kamath, Chondhi and Bamansure. The village is locally divided into various neighborhoods; namely, Khore, Angshe Ali, Brahmin Ali, Bazar Peth, Bhandar Ali, Mhatre Ali, Bhombad, Sri Nagar and Sai Nagar (also known as Navedar Kihim).

Auto Rickshaws are readily available everywhere for local travel, but the fares are not regulated. Its a common practice to decide the fare before hand to avoid bargaining later.
