Karnataka coastal tourism to shine with development of country’s first Marina at Byndoor

 Monday, February 27, 2023 


In a bid to boost coastal tourism, the country’s first Marina at Byndoor, Udupi district will be developed, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.

CM Bommai stated on Saturday at the ‘Seven Wonders of Karnataka’ function hosted by the Department of Tourism that the history of the greatest dynasties such as Ganga, Kadamba, Rashtrakoota, Chalukya, and Hoysala will be collected from the Department of Archaeology and developed into historic tourism. This would not only help tourism thrive, but it will also help people grasp Karnataka’s rich past.

“To promote coastal tourism in Karnataka, the country’s first Marina will be constructed at Byndoor in the Udupi district. After seeking permission from the Government of India for the relaxation of Coastal Regulation Zone rules, it is proposed to take up beach tourism in coastal areas and pilgrim tourism,” said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

According to the CM, the government has proposed to establish a corridor of old temples like Madhukeshwara in Banavasi and Dattatreya in Ganagapura and promote ‘Yatra tourism’. There are instructions for developing the Benakal region.

The Anjanadri Betta is being developed. A plan has been devised to pay authorised tourist guides a monthly stipend of Rs 5000, with other benefits supplied by the government.

CM Bommai further vowed to provide all support to the Seven Wonders of Karnataka initiative in order to give tourism a new direction. If the Suvarna News Channel shares information on 5,000 spots that they have discovered while hunting for the Seven Hidden Wonders, the government will take efforts to enhance tourism in those areas.

“We must enjoy nature’s beauty must it must be protected. I congratulate Suvarnanews and Kannada Prabhua for finding out the seven wonders of Karnataka,” he said.

“Travelling is man’s natural habit and this has paved way for development. Karnataka is blessed with nature’s bounty. It has a 350 km coastal area, 10 different weather zones, 400 km of the Western Ghats, a rich bio-diversity where the sunrays will be there for 300 days, and several rivers. Nature is on their side but they cannot go against it. For this reason, the green budget had been prepared. The damage caused to nature must be corrected immediately,” the chief minister added.
