Karnataka Government in a bid to promote the coastal tourism is planning to build India's first Marina at Byndoor. Country's first Marina or a dockage will be constructed in Byndoor in Udupi district.
In order to execute this step, the Government will be seeking permission from the Centre for the relaxation of coastal regulation zone (CRZ) in order to take up the beach tourism in coastal areas and pilgrim tourism.
Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai stated, “The government will also seek permission from the Centre for the relaxation of coastal regulation zone (CRZ) to take up beach tourism in coastal areas and pilgrim tourism”.
"Travelling is man's natural habit and this has paved the way for development. Karnataka is blessed with Nature's bounty," he said at an event organised by the state's Tourism Department last week.
An announcement of the Seven Wonders of Karnataka last week after shortlisting from 5,000 nominated places was made to build a corridor of the ancient temples like Madhukeshwara in Banavasi and Dattatreya in Ganagapura to promote “Yatra tourism”.
As per the CM Bommai, Karnataka has a true potential to be one of the top attractions of India. "It (Karnataka) has a 350 km coastal area, 10 different weather zones, 400 km of the Western Ghats, a rich biodiversity where the sun rays will be there for 300 days, and several rivers."
Additionally, the Benakal area and Anjanadri Hill will be developed to pay a monthly honorarium of Rs. 5000 to the recognized tourist guides.
