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.
