Away from the bustle and noise of the city is this little untouched beach. About 500 mts away from the Nation Highway opposite to the NITK hostels, this beach offers a beautiful view of the arabian sea. While the other beaches around have been deeply commercialized, this one still isn't and hence offers a much serene experience. Head out after... More

Just opposite to the NITK Campus. Wonderfull beach it has a light house like the kapu beach, you have to be there before 5pm for that. One has to visit the sadashiva temple on the shore of the beach which provides a scenic view of the wonderfull beach.

Though my friend has told me to go in the evening, because of time limitation we have to plan it to visit this place in the morning 10 o'clock. Access to this beach from main road is little small. Once you reach there beach is yours. When we reached we are hardly 10 people there. We found some cool place... More

Thanks to reviews at Tripadvisor that I landed up at this place. I just loved the beach because of its serenity and the Sea gulls which kept on fishing for hours together , giving me the opportunity to shoot some of the best pictures which I always dreamt off. If you are someone who looks for a beach less visited... More

It is approximately 20 kms from Mangalore and is opposite to the well known NIT-K Engineering college in Surathkal. There is a temple located on the shores of the beach. You can visit the temple and sit on the rear side of the temple which... More

The Surathkal Beach is just in front of the 1st gate of NITK when you come from Mangalore side. One can see literally the golden beach. If you add the same tourist it is none the less than that of rocky beaches of Goa. Back side full of greeneries. A peaceful temple and lighthouse are another attraction of the beach.... More

Surathkal beach is an excellent, clean beach. I visited the beach in early morning and evening for sunset. I visited in Dec 2014, for sunset, which gave me some unbelievable colors during that time. I have never seen a beautiful sunset like that ! Just amazing ... The beach sand is a peculiar white sand powdery one, which is another... More

I have never been a student at NIT and didn't visit the part of beach that comes under NIT, so might provide a different context as compared to other reviewers here. The beach is very clean and almost empty, but still looked safe for bathing. The narrow road running along this beach has a few beautiful beach houses. You might... More

Can see the natural activities near by the beach. A well planned trip with friends can be a most memorable event in this location.
