Occupying a soft-sand beach in the scenic Trasi Maravanthe area, the Turtlebay on Sea property oozes rustic charm and offers a holiday that centres around beach bumming and watersports. Plus, it suits the budget traveller to the ‘T’.
Around 15kms from Kundapur is Trasi, a beach town that’s a stone’s thrown away from Maravanthe. Here, the Turtlebay on Sea stands on an unspoiled beach that’s bordered by coconut groves and golden sands. The entire property is dotted with brick-walled cottages and sloping, tiled roofs. Over the years, the resort has become a popular site for weddings and conferences.
Beach lovers have it good at Turtlebay. You can spend hours by the beach, soaking up the sun in a hammock or splashing about in the waters. You can also venture out into the waters in boats for a dolphin-spotting expedition. And if you really like to work those muscles, even on a holiday, then kayaking across the frothy waters or riding the waves atop a surfboard will do you a world of good.
This is also a great base to visit the breathtaking Maravanthe, where you can zip across a road that’s bordered by the thrashing waves of the sea on one side and the calm waters of the River Sowparnika on the other side. Mangalore and Udupi are not too far away for a day’s outing either.
