Panambur beach is located about 10 kilometers north of the city centre and has 20 Blu Bay Cottages at the shore that are eco-friendly and just a stone's throw away.

    Enjoy activities such as jet-skiing, surfing, parasailing, horse-riding and ATV rides. If you're lucky enough, you can spot dolphins in the sea! This beach is also famous for hosting the International Kite Festival held every two years and has participants from not only all parts of India but also abroad. Now that your soul is happy, fill your tummy with some delicious Mangalorean seafood as there are food joints serving some authentic fare. Camp at the beach, enjoy the sunset and make the most of this tranquil beach in Mangalore. The beach is also open to hosting private parties, weddings, and events.


    Due to safety reasons, a few activities might be subject to availability at Panambur Beach. The beach is also less crowded during the holiday season, making it a good spot for a quiet getaway with family and loved ones.
