Someshwara beach is located near the periphery of Mangalore. It is mainly situated in Ullal at the junction of Netravati River and Arabian Sea. It is a perfect place for nature lovers and swimmers who want to have some exciting and adventurous time for them. In North is located Sri Somnath Temple, believed to be constructed during the reign of famous queen Abakkaa Devi.

The endless expanse of golden sand is ideal for sunbathing. When high tides strike the beach forcefully, it reminds about the huge power of Mother Nature. You can climb Ottinene Hillock for the best view of Netravati River. A large amount of green vegetation is present over this hillock and medicinal plants grow here naturally.
