Maravanthe is widely known as one of the best beaches in
Karnataka, and is one of the most unique tourist destinations in all of India.
The NH-66 runs directly through this small village, and has Maravanthe Beach on
one side, and the Suparnika River on the other, creating a picturesque sight
that is truly a one of a kind. The town is also famous for its Maraswamy
Temple, which is located on the beach and is a major site of pilgrimage. If you
are a car-enthusiast and are taking a road-trip through Karnataka, the site of
the N-66 slicing in between the Suparnika River and the Maravanthe Beach should
be at the top of your list for travel destinations!
