Maravanthe beach is near to Kundapura, Karnataka, India. One of Karnataka’s most beautiful beaches. It is about 55 kilometres (34 mi) from Udupi. NH-66 runs right next to the beach and the Sowparnika River flows on the other side of the road, creating a spectacular scenery and considered only one of its kind in India. The river Souparnika, which almost touches Arabian Sea here, makes a U turn and goes eastward to join the Sea only after a journey of more than 10 kilometres (6.2 mi), which is a geological wonder.
The uniqueness of the beach is that there is a river, SouparNika, on the right side of the highway and on the left is the Arabian sea. Sweet water on one side and salt water on the other side. This river does not join sea at this locatioin, but joins elsewhere leaving a picturesque virigin beach to the viewers.
The beach has casuarinas trees along the beach, a nice place to relax. There is a tiny park here which houses the famous and endangered sea turtles. Maravanthe is famous for sea turtles.

Besides this, there are many small resorts dotting the beach here.
