The port city in Karnataka, known for its pristine beaches, diverse cultural heritage and some brilliant Udupi-style cuisine. Tall, swaying palm and coconut trees and lush green surroundings offer a soothing holiday experience, despite the growing commercial character of the city.
On the Western coastline of India, this "gateway to Karnataka" is replete with a history of shipbuilding, trading port and a variety of dynasties and rulers presiding over the region. Several ancient temples and churches stand witness to this history, including the Mangladevi temple in whose honour the town is named, also offering tourists to satisfy the pilgrims in them. With lofty, verdant mountains in the backdrop, Mangalore boasts an array of clean, serene beaches, some of which are Mukka, Someshwara, Tannirbavi and Panambur beaches, surrounded by palm and coconut trees that complete the holiday picture. Famous for its seafood and Udupi-style dishes, it has a little something to appeal all palates. Take home Mangalore's export-quality coffee and cashews and some beautiful sarees to make your trip unforgettable.

Of all the destinations on Karnataka’s coast, Mangalore comes closest to being a crowded and noisy city. A centre of maritime trade for centuries, it still shows Portuguese influences in steepled churches and on the name-boards on gates and commercial establishments. It was here that the famous Mangalore tiles, made from the resilient clay of the Netravati-Gurpura-Arabian Sea confluence, were first made. Mangalore continues to be one of Karnataka’s main ports and much of the state’s coffee and cashew are exported from here. It also has some nice beaches, where the city goes to breathe.

Mangalore is bounded by the Arabian see and Western Ghats. Here the climate is almost the same as year long. Being a port city,Mangalore has got lot of beautiful beaches to visit. Mangalore which is located in south Canara district is awesome place to visit. it is a city with lot energy and is a heart of nature loving people. And also we can enjoy the sand bath in couple of beaches around Mangalore. Right time to visit Mangalore would be between November and May. Its a beautiful place ever i have seen in my life till now.
