Murudeshwara Beach is a popular tourist place on the West Coast Road in Karnataka.
The beach is on both the sides of the Gigantic Shiva temple and RNS Hotel. Though it will be crowded, the beach is a lengthy one, so walking a bit further, one can find some private place.
It is also a good place to take photographs with the huge Shiva statue as backdrop and the sun set.
There are some water sports like Water Scooter, Speed Boating, All-Terrain-Bike and Scuba Diving – available here in the beach. Scuba Diving is on a place near Netrani Island from here. (Costs around INR 5000/-)
