Devbagh



Devbagh beach resort

Devbagh beach resort is the destination, perched in karwar it is just 8 kms off the goa border.







Kodibagh jetty


arrival at kodibagh. though a very cloudy morning, (stil praying it wont rain so i can see a sunset!!). we start from this boat jetty to the resort.








the pier and arrival

here we land onto the pier, the ramp that will take us into the devbagh island. thats the ferry we took from mainland.








the view


The view from the island, far across is the bridge we sail through.









the jungle

Thanks to the rains the previous nights, the walk through the forests to the huts are a treat to the sore eyes.








kurumgad from devbagh


seen here is kurumgad island, which is yet another island resort (it doesn have a beach though) as seen from devbagh beach







SSA40462deee

the log huts and cottages in the middle of the jungle on the beachfront is where you stay.









the coast



the beach here is one of the finest, a real long coastline all to yourself, the occassional fishermen from the neighbouring fishing village are spotted at times.









the cafe



the restaurant at the island where food is served through ur entire stay.









the crab print

little did the crab know that the sand flushed by it would create such a pattern.( i see a maple leaf in it)









the sunset



though it didn rain the first day, owing to a cloudy sky missed the sunset, yet saw the evening rays pouring from the sky in two discrete places(my best moment). it rained after that!









it rained

it rained the next day! words cant sum de state.









the drive back

We return to the mainland.









Tagore Beach

head to the local beach for another sunset, but in vain.








rain drenched karwar



the bylanes of karwar rain drenched. it gives one a feeling of being in kerala.








the drive



the green pastures on the drive to karwar
