In our Mumbai to Coorg roadtrip, we stopped over at Karwar, a beautiful town in North Karnataka. Karwar is situated at the point river Kali meets the the Arabian Sea. This estuary is a rich nutrient source and as such has a high bio-diversity.
We spent an evening photographing landscapes and birds at Karwar.
Karwar is a great plaxe to stay and hang out. Apart from the beach and estuary, there are a couple of islands to visit. The Anshi National Park is also almost next doors. Karwar is worth a two night stay at the very least. Being so close to Goa, it can be tied up with a Goa trip.
[box type=”success” width=”100%” ]Karwar is on NH17 (Goa Highway, now also called NH66) just after crossing Goa. Where to stay: We had stayed at the Sterling Karwar property. It has been discontinued. The Devbagh Beach Resort is another place to stay. Apart from the estuary and beach, there is an old Shivaji Fort called Sadashivgad.[/box]

Thanks! Wish we could have spent more time here.
Lovely place. Looks very quaint and beautiful.
It’s truly divine…
Kali river looks calm, with the golden sun…can sense the meaning of the word tranquility seeing those photo. Devbagh island is nearby right, is it a nice place for dolphine watching.
