A beautiful strip of land between a river and a sea in India? Sign us up! In the small town of Udyavara, Udupi (Karnataka), you’ll find the stunning Pithrody beach best explored on a drive upon a small stretch of road. It sits serenely between the Udyavara River on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other!

A Beach That Remains Untouched

The beach is untouched and hardly known by people outside of Karnataka and is perfect for relaxing, catching mesmerising views and clicking insta worthy clicks.

Small boats ply to transport you from the mainland to the beach. For stay options, Airbnb is your best bet as this area is a lesser known region and local hosts are more readily available.
