"Sea on one side and river on other side of road" Mangalore by prakashkamani

Mangalore Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 54 photos

Beautiful sunset can be captured

Marwanthe Beach is just 95km northwards from Mangalore on the Coastal drive towards Goa.

The best part of it is there is a river called Nethrani on one side of the road and Arabian Sea on other side of the road for a small stretch.

Playing Frisby on the sands.

There is a pretty good resort "Turtle Bay Resort" (www.turtlebayeco.com) at one end of the beach.

One can book cabana in this resort for just Rs 1000 in the peak season. Food served is really good. We got very good hospitality from the resort people.

One can just take Frisby or Ball to play on the sands. Even one can put hands on Surfing board.

There is opportunity for Snorkelling also which is done at Pigeon Island(20Km -45min boat ride from Murudeshwar Beach). This place is just an hour drive(40km) from this resort. One can really see the coral reef formation and beautiful schools of fishes.

If one wants to sleep by the noise of water feeling the sea moving beside the bed, one can pitch their tents on the beach as we did and just spend good time relaxing the body on the sands.

Though one should be very selective about the location to pitch the tent as by the late night, tides are really high. One of the night, sea water just kissed our tents even. Hopefully, we were awake or else, we would have also made a movie "Cast Away".
