NITK Beach is located in Surathkal, Mangalore, Karnataka. It is 20 km from the centre of Mangalore city. The northern extension of Suratkal beach was named later NITK( National Institute of Technology, Karnataka). It is a private seashore. The lighthouse is one more attraction here which was constructed in 1972. This lighthouse is next to the temple. Both are very close to the beach.
This beach is very beautiful and stunning as well pretty clean. Many beaches in India are often filled with garbage and other trash, whereas the NITK beach is well maintained. but it closes early around 7 pm. There is no lifeguard so need to take care of yourself. There are no shops near the beach so it is advisable to bring the food along with yourself. Cool sea breeze with strong waves and sands gives you amazing feelings. People can hang out with their friends. Overall it could be a great weekend.
