Maravanthe is a village and a beach near Kundapura, Karnataka, India.

Outlook travel considers it one of Karnataka’s most beautiful beaches.It is about 55 km (34 mi) from Udupi. NH-66 (erstwhile NH-17) runs next to the beach and the Suparnika River flows on the other side of the road, creating a spectacular scenery that is considered the only one of its kind in India. The Suparnika, which almost touches Arabian Sea here, makes a U-turn and goes westward to join the sea after a journey of more than 10 km (6.2 mi).

Fishing is main activity of the fisher folk of this area, but infrastructure for marketing the marine produce is not well developed. Native boats and small diesel trawlers are used for fishing. Seafaring is avoided during the monsoons. Agriculture is another important activity, with coconut, paddy, and onion being the main crops.
