Apsarakonda beach is less crowded beach at 2 km distance from the highway. You can witness the full length view of the beach from the top viewpoint and it’s the best place to sit and relax especially during the sunset. Apsarakonda is near Honnavar (around 6 Kms), around 20 Kms from Kumta. After spending some time at Mirjan Fort headed toward Apsarakonda beach.
Estimated time to reach our destination was not more than one hour, but because of one major accident road was closed for couple of hours and took more time to reach our destination than we planned. Reached Apsarakonda around 3.00 p.m.
