Tannirbhavi beach is located in a place called Panambur which is 10 km north of Mangalore. The beach gives you a peaceful tune of calmness of a river and waves of the sea. There are plenty of state transport and private buses plying in that route from the capital city to Mangalore.
The beach is much deserted and possesses no busy essence of a crowded place. Some people love places that are devoid of crowd and believe in the fact that places like this should remain as it is and undisturbed without any artificial intervention. The place is apt for such tranquil naturalists who love secluded enjoyment of nature.
On the other side of the beach there is a naphta fired barge. The place is accessible only by road or ferry. By ferry it can be accessed through Gurupura river from Sultan Battery. Due to the seclusion of the beach which is not yet a Government recognized tourist place, often accidents happen due to carelessness as there is no life guard system. So enjoy the beauty, but have it in a safe way.
