Overnight beach camps on the cards soon

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Feb 24, 2016:  Beach sleepover parties  at Panambur have the future potential to become the next big tourism idea here.  Panambur beach has the highest average daily footfalls in Karnataka. The beach, managed by PBTDP - Panambur Beach Tourism Development Project, doesn’t need additional marketing, for its clean and sandy shores have proved to be its USP.

Beach sleepover parties  at Panambur have the future potential to become the next big tourism idea here.Recently as forerunner to the new idea, a group of around 200 fam ily friends landed at the beach around 8pm for games, music, group acting, spot interviews, poetry sessions, impromptu talent display and a campfire. A cool sea breeze added to the fun an frolic of the gathering from al age-groups. Of these, aroun 40 stayed back for the sleep over, pitching tents or just using bedsheets as they indulged in star-gazing on a full moon night. Moonlit nights are charming.

Chill, mosquitoes a problem

Yatish Baikampady , CEO, PBTDP, who played an integral part in organizing this sleepover, stated that it could spell the revival of a night beach safari that the authorities toyed with two years ago. The only trouble was the constantly changing  sea breeze could cause stifling humidity , chill and mosquito bites.

Yatish Baikampady said that sleeping in the tents or out in the open using bedsheets had their own blessings. Stray dogs and mosquitoes ensured we had a sleepless night. Nonetheless, this impromptu idea will spur PBTDP to come up with a fullfledged night beach safari during winter and spring, he added.
