Marina, a specially designed place of pleasure for small boats and yachts, will be coming up in Karnataka.
Karnataka Chief Minister recently announced that the first Marina of India will be constructed in Byndoor, Udupi district, Karnataka. He announced this while addressing a function “Seven Wonders of Karnataka” organized by the Tourism department.
The project will help in boosting coastal tourism. Marina provides active and passive recreation. The beach in Byndoor is called Someshwara beach. The place has several tourist attractions such as Koosalli waterfalls, Kshitija Nesara Dharma, Sri Seneshwara Temple, butterfly camp, etc. The place has been facing poor revenue collection due to very less developmental activities. The launch of the Marina in the place is expected to boost tourism and increase employment and tax collection.
