poet of India, Rabindranath Tagore, taken aback
by the solitude offered by the island, had written
The sea beach of Karwar is certainly
a fit place in which to realize that beauty of
nature is not a mirage of imagination, but reflects
the joy of the infinite and thus draws us to lose
ourselves into it.

offered by the nature as a Gods gift available
plenty in Devbagh.

to experience first hand life of the marine communities,
an experience one can't forget.
