Maravanthe Beach

Maravanthe Overview

Maravanthe is a beach town, located near Kundapura in the state of Karnataka. The Maravanthe beach is often called a virgin beach because it has miles and miles of white sand which remains unspoilt. The seaside town of Maravanthe is not very far from the temple town of Kollur and Kodachadri Hills.

Maravanthe is situated 50 km north of Udupi and at a distance of 110 km from Mangalore. NH-17 passes close by this beach and is only about 100 meters away from the shore. On one side of it is the Arabian Sea, while on the other side is the Sauparnika River. The Kodachadri Hills lies in the background. Trasi and Padukone village are the two popular villages located near Maravanthe.

Maravanthe experiences warm summers and cool winters. Medium rainfall occurs during the months between June and August. The months between September and March are the best time to visit the beach. The starting of summers and the period following monsoons are suitable for swimming.

Water based activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving can be done at the beach of Maravanthe. Trekking is available in the Kodachadri Hills. Boat cruises can be taken on the Sowparnika River. Travellers can also take a bath in the medicinal river and visit the several temples on its banks.

Tourists visiting this place can also visit the nearby Kanchugodu fishing village. Another place to visit is a tiny village, Baindur, which is at a distance of about 45 km from Maravanthe.
