Cochin to Goa - The Malabar Coast (9 Days)

The Southern part of the coast from Goa to Kanya Kumari is called Malabar Coast. This part of the coast is not as rocky as the Konkan Coast. All along the coast sand bars have been formed by the sea-waves. The sea waves bring sand with them and deposit it along the coast. These sand bars prevent the water of the small streams from going to the sea. As a result backwaters or lagoons have been formed along this shore. This picturesque strip of coast is peppered with picture-postcard beaches, fishing villages, magnificent ruined forts and temples.

You need to drive to the forest guest house at the top of the mountain and check out the view of the delta where freshwater flows into the sea - its a sight! Then walk down 300 odd steps to the beach and check out the rocky beach (worth the hike, else drive to Someshwara beach for access via the road). The view from the viewpoint, the road and the beach are unique and worth the trip.

The best way to locate Ottinene is to search for Sai Vishram resort in Byndoor. It is marked on maps and is easier to find. Since the resort itself is located on the beach so reaching here means you have reached Ottinene. The beach where the resort is located is their private beach and outsiders are not allowed there. However you continue to drive upwards towards Marvanthe and you'll see Ottinene beach after a km or so. The beach has a small temple, few village houses and wooded area nearby. The beach is a mix of rocks and sand with loads of crab holes. The area is mostly secluded and one can be at peace just listening to sea waves clashing the rocks.

Ottinene is a combination of view point, beach, temple and light forest. Located off NH17 (new no 66) between Byndoor and Bhatkal, Ottinene is maintained by forest department. It has nice view point, photogenic open areas and a bit of forests around. From the view point you can walk down closer to the ocean. Beach is very scenic as a river merges with ocean here A temple also exists in the area. Beach can be reached by walk from view point or one can take a longer road. Visit during sunset Couple of cottages are available for stay, but booking has to be made in forest office in Kundapura (Costs abt Rs 800 a day), but no food or other facilities available 10 rupee per person is collected as entry fee
