Places to visit

  • Bhatkal Lighthouse : Bhatkal lighthouse is situated on a small hill near Bhatkal harbour. The Bhatkal lighthouse provides spectacular views in all directions. Going up the lighthouse is difficult, depending on working hours and whether personnel is ready to let you in, but you may still visit the lighthouse location for the view.
  • SalumaradaThimmakka Tree Park : Karnataka's government is establishing tree parks in all towns and naming them after Salumarada Thimmakka, a woman who is credited with nurturing thousands of trees in the state. There is also a tree park in Bhatkal, which opens at 10 a.m. It's nothing amazing, but if you have children or need to relax for a while, you can spend an hour here. Bhatkal's SalumaradaThimmakka Tree Park is only a few kilometers from the highway.
  • Hadin Eco Beach: Hardin Eco Beach is a park-like campus located 5-6 kilometers from I-35. You can go for a walk in the park, visit the beach, and then return. I chose to check this time because I had not been there before. The entrance cost was 20 rupees per person, and restrooms were offered. Apart from that, nothing noteworthy. Perfect for a picnic or relaxing. The drive up was beautiful.
  • TenginagundiSeawalk/ Nakhuda beach : A pleasant seawalk is being planned north of Bhatkal. Tourists are not permitted to visit the two islands visible from here. You could ask the locals if they can take you there by boat.
  • KhalifaJamia Masjid : KhalifaJamia Masjid, one of Bhatkal's eight old mosques, is roughly 200 years old and should be viewed by anyone travelling through this port town. This mosque is located on Khalifa Street, along the Sharabi River. The ancient mosque was demolished in 1966, and the current construction with two rising minarets was finished in 1972.
  • Murudeshwara Temple : The temple is the main attraction here. It's fun to visit and photograph a massive statue of Lord Shiva. Aria in the background of this statue, it appears that Shiva is sitting on Aria. Tourists can ride an elevator to the 18th story of the temple tower for Rs 10 per person and enjoy the magnificent splendor of Murdeshwara. A beach near the temple is crowded with boat operators. You can go boating in a variety of ways, depending on your preference.
