Karwar, Karnataka

Been there recently?

If you are a beach lover, then do not think twice. Head straight to Karwar, and the town has all types of beaches in its vicinity that will leave you amazed. Stuck on a small piece of land that is blocked on all four sides by nature, the city has remained unchanged for decades. So have the beaches! The pristine beaches besotted even Rabindranath Tagore, who said that he witnessed the best sunset of his life here. Though some of the beautiful land and island beaches were lost for good for the Seabird Naval Base Project, Karwar still has many outstanding beach stretches to surprise beach lovers. If you want to try something other than beaches, then hire a boat and zoom away on the Kali River upstream or into the sea and towards one of the many islands a small distance off the coast. The surprise package of Karwar is the presence of waterfalls and hill peaks on the outskirts, which should interest trek enthusiasts. The numerous mini dams with lovely viewpoints on the other side of the river make Karwar even more interesting. All in all, Karwar is a complete package waiting to be explored by you.

Nearby Places to See


Rabindranath Tagore Beach
Karwar’s town centre is located on Rabindranath Tagore Beach. Rabindranath Tagore saw the most stunning sunset of his life from this spot. A major interstate runs parallel to this stretch of beach that has been extensively developed and looks stunning. The INS Chapal, a missile boat from the Indian Navy, is docked at this beach and serves as a museum.
Tilmati Beach

Tilmati Beach is a small beach with black sand that is located right next to Majali Beach. In Konkani, the term for sesame mud, til-mati, is used. The beach got its name because the sand looks like black sesame seeds. This beach can be reached after a 20-minute walk along the cliffs of a mountain on Majali Beach’s far right.
Devbagh Beach

One of the best beaches in Karnataka is Devbagh, which is found where the Kali River empties into the sea. As it nears the ocean, a stream that has been flowing parallel to the beach for some time now joins the Kali River. The estuary formed by this stream along the entire length of the beach contributes to the beauty of the area.
Sadashivgad Fort

The Sonda kings constructed Sadashivgad Fort on a hill overlooking the right bank of the Kali River just upstream from where it flows into the sea. A cannon and a few of the fort’s walls are still standing.


Karwar is close to a number of other beaches, including Kadamba, Yadav, Elena, Mahaveer, Mountain, Mudaga, Gabtiwada, and Binaga. The small, beautiful beaches of Kadamb and Elena, the Yadav and Mountain beaches are tucked between cliffs that drop straight into the water. Another beautiful beach is Gabtiwada Beach, while Harwada Beach is ideal for watching the sun go down.
Kurmagad Island

This small island is located about four to five kilometres off the coast of Karwar, and it is home to a temple honouring Bhagawan Narasimha. People are only allowed to set foot on the island on the one day a year when a temple fair is being held.
