Dear Reader,

We asked you to share your best Indian beach pictures with us and the first entries are already in.

Harsha Bhatt recommends Karnataka's beautiful Byndoor beach, also known as Ottinene beach.

Located in Kundapura taluka in the Udupi district, Byndoor beach is also close to Maravanthe beach where one side of the road is bordered by the Arabian Sea. The other side is bordered by the Souparnika river.

Byndoor beach offers pristine waters and a magnificent view from nearby hill.

Nice hotels and resorts to stay, excellent food nearby and proximity to other major tourist/spiritual places makes Byndoor beach even more loveable.

Harsha shares some images of this lovely beach.

Gaurav Deshpande visited Rushikonda beach during his visit to Vizag (Visakhapatnam) in May 2023.

"What I liked about this beach," he says, "is its pristine blue waters and its relative cleanliness and picturesque scenery compared to the beaches in Mumbai."

Take a look:
