We visited this place on the way back from Mangalore and spend just 30-40 minutes. Its a good place to go for a while. Not a must watch though.

Sultan Battery, known by locals as "BATH-TERRI" is a picnic spot on the banks of the Gurupur river close to Nav Bharat Circle, Mangalore (Rs 50/- one way by auto). It semmed to be a sandstone fortification, which is round shaped with a stair to reach the top,the other gates are locked so could not be seen what was inside.... More

It's a good place to visit with family. It's amazing to watch the sunset from here sitting in front of the river. You can take a boat ride and you also get to drink the local drink toddy.

This place is often confused as a shop that manufactures Batteries :). A place to stress out for college group after long hours of lectures, meetup place for friends meeting after decades, family outing and so on. The place has a historical fort of Tipu sultan which has a secret underground path supposedly reaching Srirangapatnam. The fort is situated besides... More

You have the mainland followed by a river body with an island with a church and finally the open Arabian Sea. One of the best sunset points. Also a small defunct fort of Tipu Sultan can be observed on the land side.

But I'm not sure why - the view of the waterways was pleasant. If you were stuck for time, I'd give this one the swerve, as it's not particularly interesting. For a newcomer to Mangalore, the rickshaw drive there was more interesting.

Its a typical beach of a typical Indian city. People come here with families and kids and have fun in the sand.. However the sea is a bit rough and risky for my taste so won't recommend bathing/swimming here. You can also see a submerged boat here which has some interesting stories floating around.

Sultan Battery is the access point to the New Thannirbhavi beach. Here we get to cross a river near its mouth to reach the beach. The beach here is pretty clean and pretty scenic. The combination of seeing both the fresh and salt water is really good
