Marvanthe Beach is located only 12 km from the main city of Kundapur, the Maravanthe Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the city of Karnataka. The shoreline of this serene beach runs alongside the National Highway 17 (NH17) at a mere distance of 100 meters! On one side, the gentle waves of the mesmerizing Arabian Sea crash at the shore of the Maravanthe beach and form a foamy white outline between the golden sand and the deep blue waters; and as you look to the other side, the Kodachadri Hills make a beautiful backdrop for the Sauparnika River that reaches out to the shore of the beach. Each and every person visiting the Maravanthe beach must witness the sunset. It is surely one of the most beautiful moments to be captured in your memories.
The golden sand, clear blue sky, swaying palm trees, and the endless shore provides an undoubtedly attractive tourist destination. The serene and unspoiled beach is at its best during the sunsets.
