Mangalore

4
A gateway to the coastal region, Mangalore has long served as a stop-off point on maritime trade routes, and remains a major port city today. Despite its status as one of India's fastest-growing cities, Mangalore's tourism tends to focus on the least built-up spots. Most visitors flock to the quiet and relatively unknown beaches, where atmospheric seafood shacks serve local, spicy delicacies along the stretches of sand. Mangalore is in Dakshina Kannada District. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Mangalore and add them to your vacation plans using our India online trip planner .

Where to stay in Mangalore

Mangalore offers a diverse set of accommodations to its visitors, focusing on the city center and the coast. Look north of the central train station for the widest choice in town, where some luxury options line the more prominent boulevards, and a wealth of budget hotels cater to shoestring travelers. Along the coast, some characterful old hotels cluster around the port, and a couple of hotels put you right on the sands of the beaches.
