about karwar

The islands off the coast of Karwar have much to recommend them — fine sand, blue sea and green forests and also that their beauty inspired some of Rabindranath Tagore’s writing. Beaches, falls, historical spots and temples - it’s a perfect vacation spot. It’s a photographer’s delight! You can capture the sunset from the Sadashivgad Hill Fort or get the Octagonal Church to pose, the architecture at the Durga Temple is definitely worth a few clicks and so are the ochre paintings at Venkataramana Temple. And you can give your camera some rest when you indulge in the scrumptious seafood delights and some adventure sports! If you’ve been planning a family vacation for long, your search for a destination ends right here.

If the little wonders of world woo you more passionately than the bigger, more celebrated ones, Karwar is just the place for you. You can give a more-than-welcome turn to your Gokarna vacation by reaching Karwar in just 1.5 hours.

Karwar has managed to retain the old world charm of the days when it was one of the major trading centres for the Dutch, the British and the Portuguese. From the beaches to the ancient churches, the beautiful town is soaked in the magic of the bygone era. Bring out your camera and capture the innocent charm of this quaint destination. Promising you a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, away from the hustle bustle of cities, this laid back town is a surprise package. Mark a day on your itinerary for Karwar for it houses attractions like Oyster Rock Lighthouse, Sadashivgad Fort, Karwar Beach, Devkar Falls, High Church, Maruti Temple and much more.
