Confluence of nature

One side there is Marvanthe beach and other side there is a river. Grab a beer and watch the sun go down the horizon :-)

We went there in this Beach on Feb - 2016. If you want to spend some times with your lovely family, Maravanthe Beach is the best option for you. The neat and clean Beach with crystal clear water of Arabian Sea will mesmerize you.

A nice beach on the coastal highway between Panvel and Kochi on NH 17. It has a 3 km stretch with the national highway right on the beach, with the distance between the road and the water being hardly 3 meters separated by rocks. The rocks are placed tactfully so that one can sit on them and get a beautiful... More

This is a very calm and clean beach around 50 KM from Udupi. It is situated right beside NH66. It is good for a relaxing time and for watching the sunset. The river runs parallel to the beach on the other side of the highway and it is definitely something unique about this place. Not much happening in terms of... More

Cool place to relax and watch the sun set. Do not visit the place in the afternoon, too hot. There is no food available at the beach but the beach was very clean.

If you are near udupi, then do not miss this place - its close to 65kms away from Udupi and its worth visiting. There are quite a few resorts nearby, which... More

On NH17 coming from Murudeshwar and going towards Kundapur, you pass a place called Maravanthe where a beautiful natural spectacle is to be behold. Here on your left side is river Souparnika and on your right side is the Arabian sea. The river then takes a U turn and goes away from sea before falling into it at Kundapur. The... More
