Maravanthe Beach
Relax and Unleash the Pristine Beauty

One of the most beautiful beach, considered by Outlook, “Maravanthe” is located close to Kundapura in coastal Karnataka.

While travelling from Karwar to Udupi through road, the spectacular and serene natural beauty is a rare combination, where  rip-roaring Arabian sea accompanies you on one side of the road and calm Sauparnik river on the other.

  Yet un-explored, with miles and miles of white sand, Maravanthe Beach is perfect for the travellers looking down to relax for some time and then continue journey. Perfect break from routine and enjoy swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Crystal clear blue water, white clean sand, cool day time breeze ... It is an exhilarating experience far from the madding crowd.
 
  Apart from water sports there are few historical  places like Mookambika Temple , Kundapura, Kanchugodu, Belaka Theertha Falls and Baindur (famous for its beautiful sunset). St. Mary's Island, which is well known for its black volcanic rock formations, is worth visiting.
Kodachadri hills offers trekking trails but are suggested for professional, but a refreshing dip in Souparnika river is a perfect bargain, as local tale suggests it medicinal qualities.


  Maravanthe Beach, with its humid climate in summer and blissful winters offers delicious local Manglorian cousines and mouth watering sea food. Tulu and Kannada are the commonly spoken languages here.

Weekend Surf

When we used to travel some years back with our parents, relatives and family friends do you remember there used to be lots of discussions and planning of dates that who is free on which dates and then the destination and dates of travelling had been fixed. This all used to be mostly for long vacations here in India like Diwali holidays or summer holidays where children have holidays and elders can tag along taking the leaves from offices. Before some years a concept came of weekend traveling, why one should wait for Diwali or summer holidays to pack your bags and be ready for roll, why not travel on weekends also to the places nearby our town. These days Airfares have been affordable for common man and cheers to that! Due to affordable airfares one can actually travel a bit away from the city you are living in and go to outstations. Getaways from the main city are small vacations which can be utilized as the stress boosters.

We work all the week and wait for weekend, some may use it to sit and relax at homes and then there are hardcore travelers who do the same thing of relaxing going to outstations. These days’ getaway vacations are popular since they are short and sweet. It needs not to be planned months back and can work out perfectly.
