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 would leave you amazed. Stuck in 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 beaches 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 else 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 for you to be explored.
