Beach with river running in parallel

This is one of the few places where you can find beach on on side of the road and the river on the other side. I visited the beach during peak monsoon. It was fantastic. You can... read more

Heard a lot about the place where one side of the road is river and sea on the other. When I visited this place in November this year, was disappointed to see that an elevated road has been constructed on the river side for 4 laning of road. The place has lost its charm as one can not see the... More

This is one of the few places where you can find beach on on side of the road and the river on the other side. I visited the beach during peak monsoon. It was fantastic. You can find a small coracle/boat near the temple on the banks of souparnika river on the other side of the beach. This ride is... More

A flyover under construction is blocking the view of the river. The waves are also rough. No water sports activities seen

Every time while going Udpi or Manglore we just stop at this beach sit for a while and move on. Its nice beach be side the highway. You can find some small shops for cool drinks and eateries. Sitting on those stones at evening time is a pleasant experince.

Though during our trip, a flyover was being constructed at the site and usual views were all distorted but still it was a great exploration. Beach was not crowded and it was fun walking by the side. Best part was the botor ride in the river, thanks to Raju. His team was stationed there for sand excavation and offered us... More

This beach, specially the view from the highway used to breathtaking a couple of year ago. People would drive all the way out to Maravanthe just to witness the river on side of the road and the sea on the other side. But now, as always, humans have spoilt it. There’s a flyover being constructed on one side, so you... More

Maravanthe beach has a beautiful location. Huge waves and the noise of the sea makes you forget the world. The water and the beach is really clean. It is not a safe beach to swim.

It was a long wish to visit Maravanthe. We got it this month. A fab place with the sea on one side and the river flowing in parallel on the other. The whole konkan highway is being expanded from a 2 Lane to 4 lanes, so a lot of road work going on. The stretch along Maravanthe is also being... More
