Maravanthe beach is near Kundapura about 105 kms from Mangalore. Outlook travel considers it one of Karnataka’s most beautiful beaches. The uniqueness of this location is NH-66 (erstwhile NH-17) runs next to the beach and the Suparnika River flows on the other side of the road, creating a spectacular scenery that is considered the only one of its kind in India. The National Highway passes at a close distance of 100 m from the shoreline. While traveling on the highway along the beach for a kilometer stretch, you can see the Arabian Sea on one side and the Kodachadri Hills forming a backdrop to the Sauparnika River on the other.
The Suparnika River, which almost touches the Arabian Sea here, makes a U-turn and goes eastward to join the sea after a journey of nearly 10+ km. The beach has white sandy shores covered with flora and there are plenty of private cottages and hotels, which are located on the shores.
