Maravanthe Tourism & Travel Guide

The laid back beach of Maravanthe is one of the most beautiful beaches that Karnataka has to offer. What makes this corridor of the coastline unique is that the National Highway 17 and the Suparnika river run parallel to its rocky shore. If you plan to take a road trip along the highway, you’re in for a stunning visual treat. The beach, with the swaying palm trees, crystal clear water of the Arabian and clear blue sky, is a great place to relax. Water activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving can be enjoyed at Maravanthe. The Maraswamy Temple is located next to the beach, which looks dazzling with its virgin white sand. An opportunity that you cannot let go of is to witness and also possibly indulge in fishing along with the coastal fishermen. Tucked away in a corner is the Turtle Bay Beach Resort that almost merges with the sand and the sea. Grab a beer and watch the beauty of the confluence of nature as the sun goes down the horizon. If you are looking forward to spending some time away from the bustling cities, Maravanthe is an ideal beach to hit because of it serenity and picturesque setting.

Trips and Itineraries for Maravanthe

We struggled a bit when the road towards Maravanthe beach sloped up, but then it slid down again and we took a breather whilst enjoying the view at Maravanthe beach (a beautiful beach, that too)....

NH 66, Maravanthe, Karnataka, India
Covering good distances we managed to come onto the Mangalore Gokarna highway, and then after it was a cursing night ride at 100-110 kph. Suddenly we could hear the sea waves by the side on the road and this is the place where the highway passes just next to the Maravanthe beach, Trasi. A beautiful stretch where you get to ride next to the beach. There is this food truck serving some hot snacks right there. What a sight to have some food, some interactions with those guys who told to visit Murudeshwar hill as well which is just a 2 KM detour from the highway. Still 100+ km till Murudeshwar and it was already 10 PM, by now I was little tired and almost asleep sitting behind which is not safe and asked Tudu to pull over to wash my face. When we check the distance again, don't know what speeds he was riding it shows Murudeshwar 5km. Phew, scary it was, did I sleep or I just didn't realize the distance. A quick visit to see the beautiful and huge Shiva idol from outside as it was closed, we started to Paradise beach, the next destination we ticked on the maps.

About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.
