Ottinane Beach   |   Udupi

Ottinene is situated in the middle of a place where green is abundant and the coconut trees bend backwards due to the speed of the wind. Located at a distance of 80 Km from Udupi and 40 Km from Kundapur it is one of the important tourist attractions especially to view the spectacular sunset.

The main attraction of this place is Kshitija Nesara Dhama. The Kshitija Nesara Dhama is managed by the Karnataka Department of Forest. The Forest department has built few rooms and an eatery for those who wish to enjoy their stay at this scenic location. The prices of rooms and the fare in the restaurant are reasonably priced.

Kshitija Nesara Dhama is situated on a small hill. You can have a panoramic view of the Arabian Sea from this hill. Not only the view, you can also enjoy the gentle whisper of the sea breeze. But the Sunset is wonderful. You should never miss the sunset if you are visiting Ottinene. Many travelers who pass on the National Highway NH- 17 via Ottinene come here to visit the spectacular sunset. The place is all calm and peace.

If you love the sea, you can find the steps from the Kshitija Nesara Dhama right down the hill which will take you straight to the Ottinene beach. The climb back uphill may be slightly difficult but it is worth the trouble.

Ottinene was time well spent. Going there during sunset is the next target. Add this place to your itinenary when visiting Murudeshwara/Karwar etc from Udupi side. We also found some vultures flying around that day as there was a dead animal around.

Reaching this place can be tricky-study well in Google maps or take help from locals. There’re hardly any signages by the roadside.
