Devbagh Beach Resort


Location: Drive down through hilly terrain to the coast. A land of converging landscapes, Karwar lies on a thin strip of tropical sand that is bound by the Western Ghats on its eastern side and embraced by the Arabian Sea on the west. On entering Karwar, one immediately comes face to face with the sea dotted with several small islands on the horizon. Distinct amongst them, about 3 km away, is Devbagh - the starting point of your date with coastal Karnataka.

About: It was somewhere between 1882 and 1883, when India’s first Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore stayed at Karwar. His brother Satyendranath Tagore, I.C.S., was the district judge of North Kanara, and Rabindranath was only 22 years old then.

Fascinated by the beach and the abounding sea, Rabindranath, with his party on one moonlit night, set out on a rowing boat from one end of the beach. Crossing the point of confluence of the Kali River with the sea, they sailed on along the meandering river, upstream. On their way back, they glided down with the current until they reached the mouth of the river. The party got off the boat there, and walked back home on the milky white sands of the beach. It was now far into the night. The sea was calm and so were the casuarinas. That night, even when everything around him slept, something kept Tagore awake. He wrote “Prakritir Pratishoota” or 'Nature’s Revenge', a dramatic poem, and his very first play.

Accommodation: Jungle Lodges and Resorts’ Devbagh Beach Resort is located amidst a Casuarina grove on the charming Devbagh beach. The resort faces the shallow, safe and private beach just for JLR guests. The resort has well-appointed log huts on stilts, cottages and fisherman huts all with attached baths."
