This is the stretch of the national highway 17 (now called NH 66) beyond Suratkal, at a village called Pavanje, where the backwaters of river Nandini run by the highway. Watching the sunset from here over the river is a pleasant experience. NH 17 is a wonderful route that passes through picturesque locales- rivers, by the sea, paddy fields, lush thick forests, and pretty little villages. Plan a roadtrip via this highway soon, and make sure to stop and savour such pretty sights!
