Kalinadi joining Arabian Sea

Rabindranath Tagore Beach

Karwar has one of best beaches in the country which is said to have inspired Tagore to pen his first drama. The Kali river flows through the town into Arabian Sea. Motor launches are available for boating up to the Kali river. The famous Karavali Utsav occurs on this beach during January or February every year. Tourists from across the state come to enjoy this fun filled 5 day event.

Rabindranath Tagore quoted the following during his stay in Karwar:
"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. Where the universe is expressing itself in the magic of its laws it may not be strange if we miss its infinitude; but where the heart gets into immediate touch with immensity in the beauty of the meanest of things, is any room left for argument?"
