The Oyster Rock Lighthouse is located in Karwar, Karnataka, India, on one of the islands located close to Karwar, Oyster Rock. Tourists can reach this island with the help of motor boats, which are available from Karwar Port. Constructed by the British during the 1860s, the lighthouse became functional from 25 March 1864.
The tower has a dome on the top, from where the entrance to the lantern room can be seen. The lantern was painted white rather than orange or red, in order to make the sunrise and sunset more apparent.

  • The most beautiful place in Karwar. It takes around 4-5 hours (to and fro ) from Karwar coast. If you love boating don't miss it.

  • An unknown beauty... for people who love small treks n unexpected beaches and a little adventure...
  • The visit was arranged by Prafulla boating center and the experience was Awesome. Since it was a weekday, there were none, except us in the place and the view from the top of the light house was memorable. Thanks to Prafulla boating center for a wonderful boat ride which included Oyster Island, visit to the Light house, Kali mata temple and dolphins watch.
