As you drive up north along the coastal road to Maravanthe, 50 Kms from Udupi, a surprise awaits you. The highway bordered on either side by the Arabian Sea and Suparnika River, with a backdrop of the Kutachadri Hills, makes the drive an out-of-the-world experience. And at sunset a crimson sky and golden rays reflected both in the sea and the river convert Maravathe into a fairyland of scenic beauty. A drive further up will take you to the Belekal Theertha Falls near Baindur.
Maravanthe is well-connected to Bangalore and Mysore. Regular buses ply from Karwar, Goa and Mangalore.
