Catching sundown in Surathkal

After almost a week of tripping along the Karnataka Coast and beach-hopping along the way, we had a couple of days to spend in Malpe. On our second evening...
lighthouse on Surathkal beach,

After almost a week of tripping along the Karnataka Coast and beach-hopping along the way, we had a couple of days to spend in Malpe. On our second evening there (after the trip to St. Mary’s island and all that) we decided to drive further south and visit one more beach. The plan was to drive along that highway one more time, chase the sun and watch it set in Surathkal.

 Here are few  pictures from that evening in Surathkal Beach, in Dakshina Kannada, Karnataka.

      It was a quiet subtle dusk.
      It is. I'd forgotten I had taken a pic of the moon that evening, until I saw the pictures a few days back. 😉

    what a wonderful dusk-moon you have shot D! the sea looks calm in the pics and the beach sort of deserted – so ideal 🙂

    • dNambiar
      21 August 2015 at 7:47 am

      Thank you, Kokila. It was a lovely and quiet evening at the beach or at least the part we were in, seemed very peaceful. It looked like most people were using another access to the beach. 🙂

    Beautiful pics D. The beach is clean and serene and just across NIT Surathkal. Whenever I have passed through that way I couldn't help but to admire the location of the college.

    • dNambiar
      21 August 2015 at 7:51 am

      Thank you, Somali. Yeah, it was pretty clean and a nice, serene setting to watch the sun go down. Exactly, where going to college must be like going on a seaside vacation. What fun! 🙂

      This was at the fag end of 2014. Earlier this year we visited some historical places in Karnataka and some out-of-the-world sculptures. The posts are on the way. 😉

      Thank you Archana.

    Wow loved the way you trailed the beaches. Great pictures. This look really serene, Divya.

    • dNambiar

      Roohi, beach hopping along the coast was one helluva trip. I'm so glad I did that. This time we did go do some exploring in Karnataka. And I think it was time well spent.

      Our evening in Surathkal was a serene one indeed. There weren't many people around where we decided to sit and watch the sunset. And the beach itself was a nice one. And the pretty colours in the sky were a such a treat. And the following day we drove back to the chaos that is namma city. 🙂 But I miss the city, so much.

      Thanks again, Roohi. And thank you for sharing this post on twitter. 🙂
