As one of the tourist spots, Agumbe offers some of the best scenic views of the dense green forest stretches. Agumbe is also easily along the UNESCO World Heritage Site. As a hill village, Agumbe also charms the trekkers out on some of the best trekking spots along the Western Ghats region.

Agumbe is the proud host of the The Agumbe Rainforest Research Station (ARRS), founded in 2005 by Romulus Whitaker, a herpetologist. Its purpose is to create a local biodiversity database, encourage individual scientific research, collaborate with India's Department of Forestry and conserve the rainforest of the Western Ghats as well as to educate the residents of the region in the importance of forestry conservation. The King Cobra, an endangered species, is the station's 'flagship species'.

The place has also been popularised on media from the Malgudi Days, a TV series based on novels by RK Narayan. The scenic surroundings of dense forests along the hill stretches with also a hint of the beach seems to hand all of it in just one package to visitors.
