Karwar: A Beach Holiday with a Difference

Karwar is a port city on the west coast, located on the banks of the Kali river. It was here that Rabindranath Tagore wrote ‘Prakritir Pratishodha', a dramatic poem that describes the beauty of Karwar. He had this to say "The sea beach of Karwar is certainly a fit place in which to realize that the beauty of Nature is not a mirage of the imagination, but reflects the joy of the Infinite and thus draws us to lose ourselves in it." 

Ensconced between several mangrove-covered islands on one side and hills of the Western Ghats on the other, Karwar is blessed with pristine beauty and rich bio-diversity. This town is definitely off the usual beach circuit, making it an ideal destination for a peaceful, refreshing holiday.
