The lockdown shifted our perspective towards travel; making us pause and explore smaller unknown places. Then why not the unexplored of our very own state - Karnataka!
4 days,2 of us, 1 car.. thus was our exploration of the lesser known beaches and backwaters of coastal Karnataka.
The Route -
Bangalore - Karwar - Byndoor - Bangalore. There aren't many resorts to choose from if you want to stay along the beach (we were particular about a beach resort). Thus, we chose resorts in Karwar and Byndoor as our rest spots and it was a great decision. It was optimally located for day trips along the coast touching Gokarna and Udupi and also for our return trip to Bangalore.
Day 0 -
Bangalore to Karwar is a 9 hr drive and we wanted to break that up. Unable to take an additional day off work, we decided to work from Chitradurga for a day! Chitradurga is about 3hrs from Bangalore and we started early on a Friday morning to get there for breakfast. KSTDC has a very humble, clean and great place to work from (with good wifi) to spend the night on a budget, overlooking the fort.
Day 1 - Karwar and Devbagh Beach Resort
