With gentles waves, miles of golden sand, a tranquil ambience and acres of emerald foliage, Karwar has all the makings of perfect holiday destination. The captivating landscape is ringed with rugged hills ranges, thick woods and mysteriously deep valleys. Devbagh is the most enchanting of the five islands along the Karwar coast. It is this paradise which inspired the great Indian writer, Rabindranath Tagore, to pen his first play. The Sadashivgad Hill Fort with a Durga Temple, the unique Octagonal Church, the 300-year old Venkatrama Temple with ochre paintings, and the Naganatha Temple where an anthill is worshipped, are all worth visiting.
