Karwar is 520 kms west of Bangalore. Karwar has one of the most beautiful beaches in the country which is said to have  inspired Tagore to pen his first drama. The drive of 160 km from Hubli takes one through hills first and valleys covered with dense tropical jungles and plenty of wildlife. The Kalindi river flows through the town into Arabian Sea.
