Panambur Beach To Have 20 New Tents For Vernight Stays


18 April 2013

Mumbai: The Panambur Beach Tourism Development Project (PBTDP), Mangalore is gearing up to install 20 tents on the shores to accommodate tourists at nights. Last year, PBTDP had installed nine air-conditioned furnished tents on the shore. Each of these tents could accommodate two people. The new tents will be installed on wooden platforms as Coastal Regulation Zone rules do not allow permanent structures on beaches, Pavan M V reported in The Times of India.

Yatish Baikampady, CEO, PBTDP, said that 20 tents will be installed as there has been an increased demand from tourists. "Tourists, staying in the tents will be provided complimentary breakfast," he said.

Other facilities include launching horse-carriage service with a seating capacity of 11 at the beach in May this year. The open-top horse-carriage will be customized with alloy wheels and braking system. "The work of building the carriage is completed. We will bring a pair of horses from Mumbai. The service has been introduced to promote eco-friendly vehicles on the beach and it is expected to give a boost to beach tourism in this region," Baikampady added. Also, a food festival will be organised at the beach in the same month. The festival will see a wide variety of coastal cuisines.
