5 Beaches of Mangalore to chill out this Weekend!

If you stay in Mangalore and plan to have some fun along the seashores,this list of the top five beaches of Mangalore may come in handy.

Someshwara Beach: The most pristine and rocky beach facing the Kanara region is 9 Kms to the south of Mangalore, and 1/2 Km from the Someshwara Bus stand, this beach is well-known for the large rocks called “Rudra Shile”. The historical Somanath Temple constructed during the regime of the famous queen Abbakka Devi is situated in the north side. The Sea is violent here but blue waters nibbling at your feet and the wind in your hair will be a veritable paradise. Try to avoid swimming in this beach. To get there take the City Bus Number: 44A, 44B, 44C, 44D.

The beach covering the sides of huge rock on which stands the Someshwara temple is Someshwaras main draw.

Ullal Beach: 12 Kms. South of city center lies Ullal beach. you may find the name familiar, as it is the hometown of one time Salman Khan muse and Aishwarya Rai-Bacchan look-alike, Sneha Ullal. The beach with a stretch of Coconut trees and the fishermen’s lane make it picturesque, creating a lovely coastal experience. The ruined fort of Abbakka Devi and Jain temples of 16th century are other attractions for tourists. The Dargah of Sayed Mohammed Shereful Madani, who is said to have come to Ullal from Madina 400 years ago, is a famous dargah in this region.  To get there take the City Bus Number- 44A, B, D.

Among the many beaches in Karnataka, Ullal Beach is arguably one of the best.

Panambur:The most dazzling, aggressive and popular outing spot, Panambur beach attracts a large number of tourists during the summer vacation and holidays. This picturesque beach is situated on the Mangalore – Udupi highway and is around 13 Kms. from the heart of Mangalore city. This beach stretches all the way to Surathkal and one can have a view of the Light House and splendid ships sailing on the waves of Arabian Sea. To get there take the City Bus Number- 40, 41, 45, 59.

    Do you guys recommend a good beach resort.

    • Summer Sands Beach Resort in Mangalore and the Mangalore Beach resort at Ullal. We prefer Summer Sands as it is better managed with good facilities. Kindly Google them up and decide.

        Thanks Doc for getting back. Im fine with resports/hotels that are outside / north of the city as we will be going to Kollur. Any suggestions

        • Hi,

          There are many resorts – Udupi you can try the Paradise beach resort at Malpe; Near Maravanthe/Kundapura you can try the Turtle bay beach resort. These are two good ones among the beach resorts.

          There are many smaller ones which I am not very familiar with.

          There are resorts away from the beaches as well.

    Any suggestions for good hotel to stay? Our primary interests would be temples and beaches in Mangalore and prefer a hotel in a center place.

    Also, any suggestions for good Veg restaurants?

    Thanks in advance, Shankar
