Karnataka is blessed with over 300 Kms of coast line blessed with few of the most beautiful and unexplored beaches in india. The white sand beaches near Bangalore are great destinations to just unwind from the hectic schedules of the city. The tranquillity of the beaches near Bangalore is unmatched and makes it the ideal weekend destinations near Bangalore. There are few temples along the beaches on this coast line which adds to the serenity of the beautiful beaches..
Bangalore located almost equidistant from the east and west coastline is amongst the few cities in India from where one could choose between the east or the west coast to spend a weekend away with your family.
Although we are tempted to include destinations like Pondichery and Mahabalipuram in this section dedicated to beaches near Bangalore, we are limiting ourselves to the beaches in Karnataka to be included in this section of beaches near Bangalore. Not for long though ;-)!!
Beaches near Bangalore are clustered together in three - four pockets with the other beaches spotting the coatline between them. It is easier to find accommodation in the places where beaches are clustered together. Beach hopping from one shore to the other is also fun during a holiday unless you are looking forward to just relax in the shade of a palm!
