Mangaluru, Nov 16,2015 : Sasihithlu,is obviously not so well known to many and has yet remained virgin so far. The confluence of the two rivers with the sea has created an entirely different world with its own enchanting beauty. From Sasihithlu village, one has to takes a 5 km make shift road passing amidst an acacia grove to reach the beach. One may find just a couple of groups and a beautiful beach near two rivulets.
A little attention from the authorities who want to promote tourist spots can do a lot to preserve, enhance and popularise this scenic spot on the sea shore.
The executive officer of the Panambur Beach Development Project, who is maintaining Panambur Beach on a public-private partnership basis, said Sasihithlu appears best suited to be developed as a home-stay destination.
Its cove like sheltered location,between the Arabian Sea and the Nandini, would definitely attract people to the virgin nature. Residents of the area could be financed by the government to build the necessary infrastructure to operate home-stays. Such an initiative would help the economy of the area besides benefiting tourists. The government should have a concrete plan for the beach.
While developing the beach, cleanliness in the area should be maintained. Development should not be at the cost of destroying its beauty. A caretaker is also needed to supervise activities on the beach. The potential of this spot is indeed viable.
