Karwar - the quiet little fishing town!!

An event of days gone by...last December during my solo all india motorcycle journey...

I was on NH 206 and had begun my descent to the western coast when I saw the sudden change in the landscape around me. From dense forests and hills, the world around me gave way to deep blue seas lined with pretty colourful little fishing boats. This place was Karwar and the beach was Rabindranath Tagore beach. Though my initial plan was to keep on riding, I was forced to stop and admire the beauty of Rabindranath's famous beach. Rabindranath Tagore had himself commented that "...the beauty of nature is not a mirage of the imagination, but reflects the joy of the infinite...".

The serenity of this beach gave me goose bumps. Nature has definitely been benevolent on this place and mankind has ensured that it has stayed that way. Further down the beach, I came upon the long bridge on the river Kali, which drains itself into the Arabian sea at Karwar.

From on top of the bridge, one can just stand and absorb the beauty of the umpteen small islands that dot the horizon. One of these islands is the famous Devbagh island, a popular tourist destination for a weekend getaway from Karnataka and for its under-water adventure activities.

I kept on riding after soaking in nature's overdose at this quiet little fishing town "Karwar".
