Tannirbavi beach is one of the best beaches of Dakshina Kannada. One can enjoy the sunset view here. It is located at a distance of 12 Km from Mangalore.
Tannirbavi Beach is the property of Mangalore port trust. Tannirbhavi Beach is located in Panambur, 10 km to the north of the city, near the New Mangalore Port and along the confluence of the Gurupur river and the Arabian Sea. This is comparatively more deserted and is a great spot for safe and secluded swimming. It can only be reach by land via Panambur or by ferry via Gurupura river from Sultan Battery.
A plain, straight beach, as most of the other beaches in the region, offers blissful evenings and beautiful sunsets. Opposite to the sea, the land is lined by tall trees, which add to the ambience. The beach receives more people on weekends, locals and tourists, with fewer people on weekdays. But, the crowd is always far less than that at Panambur, making Tannirbavi much serene and peaceful. You can see many fishermen at sea in their boats, ships entering and exiting the harbor from here.
