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.

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.
