This lovely beach, which is about 20 kilometres from the island’s closest land point, is notable for having an artistic and distinctive lighthouse at its northernmost point. It stands about 100 feet tall and was constructed in 1901 on a large rock surface. Visitors can access the top of the lighthouse via the spiral stairs inside, where they are greeted by a stunning 360-degree view.

Padukere Beach
This beach is a hidden gem that can be accessed by ferry or by a bridge. It is the ideal location for travellers looking to avoid the tourist crowds as well as those who want to organise a picnic by the sea. The Arabian Sea’s tranquillity can be savoured while walking along the clear sands and looking for marine life like starfish and shells. At night, the bioluminescence of the algae that line the coast causes the water to take on a bluish hue.
Agumbe Hills
Agumbe, located roughly 60 kilometres from the nearest land point, is a magical place high above the ghats. It is also one of the few locations that experiences the most rainfall. The area is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers with its abundance of waterfalls, lakes, and grasslands.

The Parshwanatha Basti, which dates to the 17th century, was constructed right on the cliff’s edge. There is a pond located on the left of the basti.
