At a distance of 1 km from Karwar Bus Stand, Karwar Beach, also known as Rabindranath Tagore Beach, is the main beach in Karwar city.

This is the most popular beach in Karwar and also an important place to promote Karwar Tourism. The long stretch of golden sands of the beach is an ideal place to relax and spent time in solitude. It has also a recreational park, colorful music fountain, Toy train, Planetarium, and an aquarium to add to its attraction. The Warship Museum is a special attraction in the beach premises. River Kali joins Arabian Sea at the end of the beach. The sunset view from the Kali Bridge is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Karwar beach is an ideal place for swimming because there are no sudden depths in the water. The soft sand here makes it ideal for sun bathing. It is quite pleasant to sit on the beach in the evening breeze and spend time while it becomes dark. The beach is an ideal place for evening walks and it doesn't have any beach activities. There are no shops or shacks in the beach. The beach is very near to Karwar port.

The Karavali Utsav is the biggest cultural event held at the Rabindranath Tagore beach in Karwar for four days. It is celebrated every year between December and January.
