The port town of Karwar is located just south of Goa on the Arabian coast in western India. Once an important port, today it is a tourist destination due to its exotic beaches, and proximity to Goa. A major naval base is located nearby.

Poet Rabindranath Tagore is said to have been greatly inspired by the beaches of Karwar, and the most popular beach is named after him today.

The fearsome Kali river meets the sea in Karwar, and the abundance of water, fish and forest resources have inspired plethora of entertaining traditions among the locals (see below, a floating wedding party).
