Life’s A Beach! Feel Sun-n-Fun at Panambur Beach this Summer

Mangaluru: “Hey, hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day; Ha, ha, ha, beautiful Sunday; Oh my, my, my, beautiful day; We’ll sail on and follow the sun, make Sunday go on and on; Hey, hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day”- Yes, it was indeed a beautiful sunny and warm Sunday, 19 March at the Panambur Beach. Being a Sunday, the beach was overcrowded, and the lifeguards were having a tough time controlling the crowd and warning them to be safe. Right in time during the exciting summer we have, Panambur Beach Development Project all pepped up with exciting activities and fun stuff like- Horse Riding on the beach; Boat Rides; Jet-Ski Ride; All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Ride; Horse Carriage ride, and just added recently “Rent a Sports’- where you can rent sports equipment like Beach cycle, beach tent, volleyball, throw ball, football, lagori, tug of war, cricket set, frisbee (flying disc), Angling and Ring toss- to be used for fun on the beach.

So why wait-take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, and head on to Panambur Beach to explore some fun and frolic adventures- under the sun, and on the sand and Water. Anything and everything one can do to the water’s edge, whether you splash about in the pristine blue waters or take those fun rides. What’s the best way to ease your troubled mind? Try walking down white sands, try riding the crashing waves, try eating a tasty coastal seafood meal or Bhel-puri over a beautiful crimson sunset… Try whatever that makes you happy, after all, “Life’s A Beach !”. Live the life of a true beach bum? You can also try the other beaches – Tannirbhavi Beach, Ullal Beach, Malpe beach, Someshwar beach and so on.

DK has most stunning and gorgeous beaches, and your Beach holidays can be wonderful family getaways if you’re prepared. Of course, sand and water are a combination that invites free play and will trigger most kids’, even adults imaginations to create fabulous, undirected games and activities. But having a list of engaging ideas in your back pocket might mean the difference between them wanting to pack it in after only an hour at the beach and not being able to drag them home after several. But try to make much use of fun when you are at the beach.

I had the pleasure of meeting Yatish Baikampady, CEO of Panambur Beach Development Project, who was kind enough to show me around the resort and also briefed about the activities that will be going around at the beach. He said, ” This year we have been associated with Rai Sport and Rentals- Mangaluru with this new initiative, launched to boost the beach tourism, where tourists and visitors can rent sports gear for fun on the beach. So far we have received a very good response from the people. These sports items will be great fun for holiday groups or corporate companies and institutions, who plan an outing on the beach.”

“When people came to me and inquired where they could find some beach fun items like Volleyball, beach cycles, Cricket set, Football etc, I thought why not set up a booth at the beach which could rent all these items, and when we contacted Rai sport and Rental, the owner Sudeep Devashya readily agreed to the deal. Thousands of visitors come to the beach every day, and during the weekend and summer holidays, nearly 40,000 visit the beach. And for the safety of people, we have our team of lifeguards who are well trained and affiliated with the Royal Life Saving Society, International Life Saving, and Surf Life Saving Australia. We have also planned many beach activities and also entertainment events which we’ll keep you posted soon.” added Baikampady.

Speaking to Team Mangalorean, Sudeep Devashya, who was employed as a IT tech in Virginia, USA, and later decided to come down for good to start his own sports rental business said, ” Seeing lots of fun activities taking place on land and also on beaches of Virginia, I thought why not introduce such fun activities for the people of Mangaluru and those who visit Mangaluru also. I am happy to be associated with Panambur Beach Tourism Development Project, by introducing a few beach fun items where visitors could have some fun and frolic while they are on the beach.”

“They can rent a Beach Cycle at Rs 50 for 5 mins; Beach Tent (Rs 100 for 1 hr); Beach Football (Rs 100 for 30 mins; Cricket Set ( Rs 100 for 30 mins); Beach Volleyball ( Rs 50 for 30 mins); Beach Throwball ( Rs 50 for 30 mins); Tug-of-War ( Rs 200 for 1 hr); Lagori/ 7 Tiles ( Rs 50 for 30 mins); Frisbee/Flying Disc (Rs 50 for 30 mins); and Ring Toss (Rs 50 for 30 mins). And for life time memories you can take a selfie with all our rental items for free if you do minimum business with us. See us and we’ll see that you have lots of fun with our rental items on the beach” added Sudeep.

In conclusion, there are tons of fun activities at Panambur Beach, with Jet-ski, boating, horse rides, ATVs, Cycling, Beach Sports, and so much more to choose from, there is something for everyone. And since Mangaluru is known for its food, there are a lot of eateries now opened right at the beach. It is stated that Panambur Beach is arguably the safest beach in India, with trained lifeguards stationed at the beach at all times of the day. So this summer makes the best use of it and have some sun and fun at Panambur Beach- Happy Holidays!
