Got to enjoy the evening by the beach and the trip to Island. The rocks thru the beaches and the view is awesome.

Very nice place for family and couples. It's located in between mangalore and udupi and one of the best island for fun. After 9am is best time to visit, u have to travel with ferry or small boats to reach this island. Carry your food so that you can spend more time.

A 45 minute boat ride from Malpe takes you to the island which was first visited by Vasco da gama on his trip to India. Beautiful island with scenic spots. The basalt rock formation is amazing.

I love to climb ... trees .. rock ... hills ... mountains ... So it was fun climbing the rocks. But going there was a little tricky. Read my blog for detailed bus map to the island. http://gypsykerung.blogspot.in/2014/04/how-to-reach-st-marys-island.html

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. You can spend one half day here. Some water sports are available in Maple beach as well. Overall a good place in... More
