Maravanthe Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Karnataka. Maravanthe is about 120 km from Mangalore, and is located on the Mangalore – Goa National Highway. The highlight of Maravanthe is that the national highway passes through at less than 50m from the shoreline of Arabian Sea on one side, and on the other side, you can also see River Souparnika flow at just less than 50m away! This stretch of sea on one side, and river on the other side of the river can be seen for about 100 meters before the river diverges away from the sea.

From the other side

It is really spectacular view all around this stretch. Maravanthe has beautiful golden sandy beach and very clear water. Several rocks are placed near the road so that the tides from the sea do not reach the road. The sunset view from this serene beach is something that will flash through your eyes for a very long time.

The other side of the road offers equally spectacular sight. River Souparnika mildly and gently flows amidst the coconut trees on the banks. The river flows next to the highway for about 100 meters, and then diverges away from the sea. It eventually joins the sea after about 12 kms! (So near yet so far!) Behind the river, you can also get a view of the forest hills far away. On a clear day, you can witness a spectacular view of green hills, blue-green river water, grey highway, golden sand beach, and blue water of the sea, all in a single panoramic view!
