Devbagh Beach resort is on an island and can be reached by boat, making it a tranquil and panoramic getaway for a perfect and quiet holiday. The entire island is covered with thick casuarina trees. The unspoilt ivory beaches beckon you. This resort is hardly 22 km south of the Goa border, and is located off Karwar, in Karnataka, India.
Devbagh is totally secluded; you are literally marooned, castaway from the cares of the world. Our guests have all the time in the world to walk around, laze in a casuarina grove, lie in hammocks to read books, play beach volleyball, or just take a swim in the waters. You can enjoy water sports in the creek. With cozily furnished log huts-on-stilts and a rustic gazebo called the Gol Ghar, you may enjoy some fresh seafood and delightful Indian vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine

Accomodation at Devbagh
Devbagh Beach Resort is luxury at its best. There are eight ethnic-style well- designed log huts which stand on 10-foot high wooden stilts, each at least 30 to 50 feet apart, all with attached modern baths. The view from your sit-out to your exclusive beach is spell binding. The log hut interiors are spacious and comfortably furnished. Six tents (16 ft. x 12 ft.) with a row of modern bath nearby, are also available at a cheaper rate. Treat yourself to a sumptuous buffet of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine in an open-to-sides dining hall -- the Gol Ghar. Have your lunch around 1.30 pm after you check in. You are served tea in the evening, dinner in Gol-Ghar around 9 p.m., bed-tea and breakfast to keep you smiling.
Only Devbagh offers you a rare opportunity to experience first hand the life of the marine communities that dwell beneath the sparkling azure waters surrounding this secluded ivory beach resort. You can go scuba diving or Snorkelling under the supervision and guidance of our trained staff.
Sit on the beach and take a chance to watch dozens of dolphins frolicking in the waters. Go on a round trip for several hours deep into the Arabian sea and look at several other islands like Kumaragarh, Oyster Rock, Anjudeep and Sanyasi. And all along, sea otters and dolphins will keep you company. The trawler trip costs Rs. 1,000 per trip, irrespective of the number of persons. Go trekking in the forest or work up a sweat at some beach sports. Enjoy the luxury of having your own beach for swimming and sunbathing. If lazing around is your idea of a holiday, then you could spend hours together doing just that, lying in your hammock under the shade of the trees.
The Devbagh area is home to many tribal communities like the Halakki Vakkals. Many study groups have visited the tribal hamlets and have benefited by spending time at close quarters with these communities.
