Since, Devbagh beach resort in karwar is around 525 kms from our home in Bangalore. which means around 9hrs drive, we decided to take a bus this time which departed from Bangalore at around 9:00 pm. We reached Karwar the following morning at 8:30 am and took an autorickshaw towards the Jungle lodges office which is just 10 minutes away from the bus stand.
After completing the formalities, a jungle lodges vehicle escorted us to one of the boats that took us to the Devbagh Island on the other side.

The moment we entered Devbagh island, we were welcomed with the sweet chirping of birds and a number of Brahmini kites hovering around. Even though it was summer and was pretty hot, we hardly felt the heat. Thanks to the numerous casuarina trees spread across the island. You will be totally amazed with the setting of the resort. There are only 18 cottages separated from each other by 20 feet, each one of them equipped with a hammock and all the cottages facing the sea and private beach.
We quickly checked-into our cottage, freshened up and headed towards the dining area- golghar for breakfast and later spent some time lazying around over the hammock and taking a walk around the property.
At 1:30 pm lunch was served at gol ghar. The food was a mix of North Indian and south Indian dishes and was simple and delicious. Post lunch we took a short nap and woke up for evening tea at 4:30 pm after which we headed towards the beach which is only 100 meter walk from the cottage.
The pristine Devbagh beach is unique on its own. Located between the Karli backwaters on one side and the majestic Arabian Sea on the other, The Devbagh Sangam is one of the highlights of this beach resort.
It’s a a perfect sandy private beach to laze around. The management has installed a couple of beach chairs with umbrellas for lounging at the beach and a number of hammocks to laze around and enjoy the gentle breeze. The beach is pristine and ideal for swimming. A life guard is available at fixed timings when you can dare to venture into sea.There is a Bar on the shore which is operational during evenings only.

In the morning the management arranges a gentle nature walk with a naturalist inside the island at 6:00 am. A great opportunity to gather information about the flora and fauna of the place. But since we have already been to this place before, we willingly skipped this activity.

Breakfast was served at 8:30 am followed by a boat ride in the ocean to watch dolphins. The boat ride took us through the little islands spread across and the guide provided some interesting information about those islands and the dolphins. We were able to spot a number of dolphins during the ride which ended after 45 minutes.

On our return to the shore we decided to spend some time casually sitting under the shade along the shore and soak in the beauty of nature around us. Post lunch we took some rest under the trees after which we stared to pack for our return.
