Cindu is a wanderlust and avid traveller who has travelled across the globe. She discovers the magical placed named ‘Maravanthe’ on one fine rainy day! Maravanthe, reminds me of a bride, veiled by the dark clouds, embellished by the raindrops, waiting in nervousness and excitement for a fresh downpour. I am almost certain that offbeat travel to Marvanthe provided at least some inspiration to Heaven’s design!
This is a beach/town near Kundapur in Karnataka. Well, distance wise, it’s about 50 Kms from Udupi and a little over 100 Kms from Mangalore. A portion of NH-17, the highway, provides a surprising and irresistible view. The road lies 100 mts off the shore of the Maravanthe beach.
On one side of this road, you have the roaring Arabian Sea and on the other, you have River Sauparnika almost nurturing the view with its calmness.
This picture is of me in a car, taking a shot of me taking the shot of the Maravathe beach and the other two pictures are of the river. It is a highly recommended drive. I want to just leave you with the pictures of this place…
Trivia: The Padukone Village, that lies a boat ride away from the Sauparnika river is from where Prakash Padukone hails. Yes, yes, technically, Deepika Padukone too!
