Very Very Clean Beach and Very nice place for taking pictures. It takes 20-30 minutes to reach the island by boat. But a lovely journey and lovely place with white sand, lots of trees, rocks.. A Perfect place to have a good time with friends.

You can take a ferry (Rs 150) from Malpe beach to St Marys Island, just a 15 minute ride. Take food along with you as nothing is available in the island. Shallow water and filled with slippery rocks.

Liked: place is pretty, best to see over sunset or at dawn Disliked: Its not clean and maintained Better take a bigger motor-boat for reaching this place, small ones do not have any safety gear plus they always run at double the capacity.

I visited this place with my friends and had a great time there. If u are any where near Mangalore then its a must go place. The excitement starts with the boat ride from Malpe to the island.

You need to take a boat from the malpe jetty which takes around 40 minutes to reach. Need to take your requirements as nothing much is available on the island. Lovely place to rest. the basaltic rock formation is a treat to watch.
