Travellers Best Choice 2021 – Trip Advisor

Located just 186 km from Goa, Honnavar port town stands different in style, culture and history in all respects. While Goa is commercialised and sees tourists flocking from all directions, Honnavar still boasts of traditions sprinkled all over it. It is a quaint town with immense history, varied landscapes, rich culture, and simplicity.

Lying on the bank of the Arabian Sea, this town has attracted and absorbed the culture of different people from countries like Portugal, England and the Netherlands that came here for trade. Apart from the human impact, the natural setting of Mangrove Forest sets the town apart. You will also get to see the Konkan Railway line passing through it. 

The town lies at a phenomenal location that forms an estuary: the Arabian Sea at the west and Sharavathi River at the south. Along with that, the estuary includes multiple islands, separated from each other but all primarily identical. Surprisingly, the Sharavathi River forms the famous Jog Falls. Agriculture and fishery are evergreen contributors to the economy of Honnavar. Although the Roof Tile industry is declining, it still prospers with beekeeping and Cashew nut processing.

With that being said, this port town is a must-see for it holds so many opportunities for the future. Plan the Unplanned holds particular interest with this port town and would like you to see and experience the same. Read the complete itinerary of Honnavar Port Town for the comprehensive plan and book your tickets at the earliest.
