Quite exciting to be ferried on a motorboat to the island, the water level was quite less due to off season. Once we docked at the island we were welcomed by the cottages set within the dense, beautiful forest kind of a setting. There were hardly people here, a perfect seclusion from all the humdrum. This part of Karwar was exquisite to say the least. The beach was extremely tidy, it didn't take us long to change to our beach-attire and hit the water. But be warned the tides are quite strong and the initial stretch deep enough at waist level. Concerned we didn't venture much into the water.
All of us woke up late, exhausted with yesterday's roaming around and heat. We decided to spend the day in Devbagh Beach which can be reached by taking a boat ride over the Kali river. To reach the boat point we had to take autos till there, that exits the city, hits the highway and crosses the Kali river bridge before taking a right from the highway to finally reach the booking office of Jungle Resorts. One suggestion would be to reach this place early in the morn so as to enjoy all the water sport activities on the island (which are, of course charged separately). We didn't opt for any water sports activity as we just wanted to relax before we take the night bus back to Bengaluru. If I remember well per person charges were between 1200-1400 for a whole day at the island which included lunch, evening tea with snacks, to and fro ferrying to the island, and access to the washrooms of the cottages.
1) Wake up at 5:30AM . Get freshen up and be ready for the Scuba Diving. The boat will pick you up at 6:30AM right in front of your cottage. While you are waiting for the boat keep gazing at the horizon where the sky and sea meets, If you are lucky you will see some Dolphins. We were lucky enough to see coupe of them.
6) Bonfire , Starters and Party on the beach start at 7PM. So, that you can go to bed by 11PM as morning you gotta go for Scubba Diving
