A must visit beach in Karnataka

This is a beach you must visit in Karnataka. You may not be able to swim at this beach, I don't recommend that you even try, but the views at this beach are exhilarating.

This is a place where you will find river on one side of the road and the beach on the other. Really fantastic to look at, and if you go during rains, it may even scare you a bit to just stand by the road.

This is NOT the place to swim, waters are very deep right from the shore and currents very strong, it is downright scary to enter the waters at this beach.

There is a resort pretty close to the road, I think it's called Turtle Bay resort, decent place to stay at right along the beach. Not much activities to do. Again try visiting during sunset as there is no shade on the beach. Carry water and eatables if you don't want to visit the resort and pay steep prices for food, although it's not all that expensive.

Don't forget your camera as, like I said the views are awe inspiring, particularly during monsoons.

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. This village is popular because of its beach and sunset views. Not very far from this place is Ottinane, which has a rocky overhanging cliff, often referred to as Sunset Point. Another attraction at a short distance from this place is the Belaka Theertha Falls.

Kundapur is another place to visit near Maravanthe. It is at a distance of about 12 km from Maravanthe. Kundapur town is named after the popular Kundeshvara temple, which is located here.
