HolidayIQ traveller Sumit Shetty from Pune shares, “Harihareshwar is the silence lover’s home. You won’t find much hoohaa of other beaches in this one as it is pretty closed. There is a Shiva temple on one side which is worth a visit. You can find accommodation at the greengate resort or MTDC resorts in Diveagar or , like us, you can stay with the homeowners with beach houses. It is a pretty fun experience.”

HolidayIQ traveller Vijay Hebbar shares, “Surathkal is a destination for all kinds of travelling enthusiasts. If you’re interested in visiting temples then Surathkal will not disappoint. There are at least 6 temples of various deities in and around Surathkal. If you love beaches then you’re in for a treat. Visit the Surathkal Beach early in the morning. It is an epitome of peacefulness. Jog or Meditate there, it’s your choice. It is one of the cleanest beaches you will ever see. People of Surathkal are very helpful and friendly. We had no trouble finding our way around this town. The bus service is top notch. With buses to Mangalore, Udupi and Manipal every 5 minutes you don’t have to worry about getting to other major areas of this Canara region of Karnataka. Food is great too. With great restaurants nearby and one near the beach, you will love the south Indian food here. Of course if you like other cuisines they have that too. Fish is famous here at this coastal town. Don’t forget to try fish curry and fry. I would like to visit this place once more. Away from the noise and pollution of the city, Surathkal offers you a calm getaway destination.”
