About Mangalore Tourism

With a bounty of wonderful features, diverse culture, and spicy seafood dishes to pamper one’s senses, Mangalore is, inarguably, one of the most brilliant tourist attractions one has ever been to. Replete with the slender winding streets, golden beaches, picturesque gable-roofed houses, temples and churches, and exhilarating fragrance of the azure sea, this city is meant to leave its travellers amazed and spellbound.

Snuggled at the estuaries of the picturesque Netravati and Gurupur Rivers on the coast of Arabian Sea, Mangalore has been a major port on international trade routes since the 6th century. A useful gateway for the Konkan coast and inland Kodagu region, with a contrast of a relaxing coastal town and a hectic nightmare, this city has got a Jekyll and Hyde thing going.

Opt for a package of Mangalore tourism; and hop on an excursion to this vibrant city, which is a tapestry of rich culture and natural beauty, and experience an appealing and off-the-beaten-path feel, like never before! Blooming with the fantastic places, this picturesque beauty is named after the deity Mangaladevi and is often proclaimed as the gateway to Karnataka.

With an all-inclusive tour package of the city, here’s a chance to explore the most famous places to visit in Mangalore, like: Mangaladevi Temple, Kadri Manjunatha Temple, Panambur beach, Malpe beach, Someshwara beach, Tannirbavi Beach, St. Aloysius Chapel, and many more. Along with an opportunity to witness the unique charm of Mother Nature that leaves one aghast and rejuvenated, at the same time!

What’s more? Thanks to its diverse culture, a huge flock of tourists visits here to discover the rich history of Mangalore which has been ruled by various empires from the ancient time, including Kadambas, Rashtrakutas, Chalukyas, Vijaynagar Empire, Portuguese, and the British. The mesmerizing past and its indescribable beauty, together make this port city- a destination worth visiting.


Besides its geographical location, the calm and scenic beauty of Mangalore also makes it a delight for its travellers. With a view of vastly stretched golden sand and azure sea, where everything that defines confinement seems to fade away, a visitor here finds solace and fun along the shoreline. Crammed with choices to lounge on a spectacular Mangalore beach, partake in adventurous activities, like surfing, parasailing, trekking, snorkeling, and many more, savour delectable seafood cuisines, and make a visit to famous temples in Mangalore, here’s not a single moment to get bored!

Renowned for its beautiful, exotic, lustrous and virgin beaches, Mangalore city is also termed as the ' Entry point to Beach Country'. On a Mangalore sightseeing tour, do visit to the Ullal Beach which grabs attention of thousands of tourists all through the year, and another important beach called- Karwar Beach where the golden sand is incessantly caressed by the gentle waves of the turquoise Arabian Sea; for a quench for the ultimate solace an explorer has been looking for ends here! Blessed with astonishing beaches, ancient architectures, and swaying coconut palms, this coming age commercialized city still manages to provide a soothing sojourn away from the hustle bustle.

How to Reach Mangalore

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

Just 18 kms away from the heart of the city, the nearest airport to Mangalore is located at Kenjar Bajpe. It takes just 25 minutes to ride from the main city to the airport. Mangalore International Airport India is also the second international airport of the Karnataka state. With numerous financial hubs like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Goa, and Delhi being connected via domestic airlines, while foreign cities like Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Dammam, Doha, and Bahrain connected through the international segment on weekly and bi-weekly basis, make this place quite accessible. Maximum number of flights to Mangalore operate from Bangalore and Mumbai. From Bangalore to Mangalore, there are four to seven flights every day, while from Mumbai there are five to six flights scheduled for a day. However, the frequency of flights to Mangalore from Dubai has been increased to five times a week.  

By Train

Connected to the Indian Railways network, regular trains run from Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram, Palghat, and other major South Indian cities via Kerala and Bangalore to Mangalore train stations. However, the Konkan Railways links Mangalore to Mumbai via Goa.

Located at Hampankatta in the heart of the city, Mangalore Central is a terminus, and is used only by the trains which terminate at Mangalore. And thus, most of the long distance trains interconnected with different cities stops here at Mangalore Junction. A few of major trains like Yesvantpur-Karwar Express and KSR Bengaluru City-Kannur Express makes it easier to cover Bangalore to Mangalore distance in a short duration. While to cover a distance from Mumbai to Mangalore, you have to take Mumbai LTT-Mangalore Junction.

By Road

Conveniently located about 395 kms to the South of Goa and 347 kms due west of Bangalore with National Highways connecting the city- Mangalore to both the sides. For the long distance, i.e. from Mysore, Goa, Mumbai and Bangalore to Mangalore bus services, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses are highly recommended because of their low fare and comfort. However, there are numerous bus services from Mangalore to all the nearby towns in Karnataka and Kerala run by both the state government transport department (KSRTC) and numerous private companies, which operate at a little competitive rates. Although, the buses are operated by different private companies, the bus numbering scheme is unified, which is quite useful for travellers and bus drivers.

Breakfast in Hotel - Not that great - Ambience was sad, didnt feel like having breakfast in Hotel. Hotel in Mangalore (Sai Navratna Palace) - Great facility, clean rooms and Yummy breakfast options. All was great for this Hotel. Hotel in Udupi ( Aaryan Resort ) - Not at all good. They provided an apartment which was in a separate building. They had insects in rooms, showers were not working, cleanliness was not maintained. Breakfast serving plates were old and yellow stained - looked like all was compromised here. Felt very sad about Aaryan Resort Udupi.

    Cab and driver caused a chaos on the trip. Driver kept mentioning that he is not paid for meals. Even driver was changed last day. No proper communication on vehicle change. Driver didn't convey the itinerary amongst themselves. Changing the itinerary caused a lot of confusion. When the trip started
    driver wasnt aware of itinerary change. Vehicle could have been better. Mys-blr driver/vehicle owner seemed to be in a hurry, drove above 100 speed. Knowing that senior citizens were on board.
