Very of the sea side is excellent. The science of the huge prism lens through which light guides the ships is interesting. On land side it is lush greenery scene with few new tall buildings peeping. Do not miss to see a temple very close to the lighthouse. The temple is very calm & quiet.

A last minute decision to attend a convention left me struggling to find a convenient yet affordable room. I'm glad I settled on The Mosser. The location is wonderful and, while not luxury accommodations, left me wanting for nothing. All of the staff were very professional and friendly. It is very clean despite a slight "old building" smell which is... More

A very nice and serene view of the arabian sea from the top ... you need to climb like aboutn10 floors and is open from 430 PM tp 530 PM all days. You can stay on top till 545 - 550 pm , but you cannot see the sunset from the top. But otherwise very good. A wide angle lens... More

The doors are open at 4 PM and closes at 5.30 PM, thus you should try and reach on time and use the full available time. The climb to the top is of 121 steps and thus if you have a knee injury, you should avoid. The last 9 stairs is through a ladder which takes you through a hole... More

A small climb to the top which gives you a fantastic view of the beach and the college and the greenery around.

The access to the beach is a bit tricky. Need to take a good driver. Entry fee for Indians is Rs.10. Its a long climb using spiral stairs, which is a bit tiring. The view from top of the light house is worth the pain of climbing stairs. Its magnificent. One needs to be very careful on the top and... More

A little away from Surathkal town, the would definitely be the place to go if you want a quite place to sit. Perfect for just a walk along the beach even on weekend because the croud is decent and not too crowded as well. Not a lot of shops available so if you are looking for something other than the...
