  • One of the best beaches of Mangalore, though is crowded in the evenings, is pleasant and worth visiting. But be careful with those kite flyers as threads keep flying all around the place since this is the major activity of the beach. From the main road, it would be around 1.5 to 2 km. You get a lot of auto rickshaws from there to the beach entrance. The sunset view is amazing. As the sun sets in the deep blue water the colours of the sky and the sea surface gives you sublime serene feelings... Awesome..!!
  • One of the most maintained and taken care by the tourism department is this beach which also hosts the international kite festival annually along with various other events and festivals. This place has lots of activities like speed boat, animal rides and beach games. Had varieties of shacks. Well protected by the life guards. The parking space is huge and it has a bug flood light which keeps the place lit at night. The place seems safe even at night although it's not recommended to wander around the beaches post 9pm.
  • One of the beautiful beaches in Mangalore. It is in the neighbouring Harbour area. Well maintained. Good number of shops are there. Evening time, crowds are there especially during week ends. Horse riding available. Children enjoys the riding. Water sports are also available. Trained operators are operating. Charges are reasonable. Every one can try water sports. It is enjoyable.
  • It's a very nice place where you can just unwind and relax gazing at the limitless sky and ocean. The beach is very well maintained. Very clean... no litter... You can see giant ships waiting to dock at the port from a distance... Makes You feel, how tiny we really are in this universe... And for those who would want to take a dip in the waters, there are changing rooms, but not well maintained. And for those who drop in unprepared, you can get some cheap beach wear and accessories as well... And for the adventurous lot, you get to enjoy speed boats, banana rides and horse rides too... And not to forget, you have life guards as well keeping track of everything that's happening, just in case of any emergencies. And for those who are eternally hungry, there are a couple of eateries too for You to munch on to something. And to top it all, You get to see amazing sunsets, that can bring the romantic out in you ;)
  • Beautiful and serene. The beach is quite clean compared to other beaches. But the usual plastic bags and cups are there. The sea captures you with her sounds and looks. Added benefit, the homeless dogs at the beach are super friendly and love love love people. Enjoyed every bit of my time there.
