Unbelievably clean beach. Perhaps the whitest sand beach in India. The shacks nearby serve good food.

Its a beautiful beach. I visited in monsoon season n' it was raining still it was a lovely scene out there. There is ample parking space. Washrooms are available for shower once you take a dip in sea. All in all a must visit if you are in udupi. Advice - preferably go in evening.

the approach to this beach from the main road (Karwar Mangalore h/w) is pretty sad. The only good think is the parking is pay so pretty well organised. Beyond that it is a mess. Not worth the drive

Its an average beach, not much fun activities, lack of hygienic food joints around but you can enjoy your sunset with your good friends.

The beach is clean and not shallow. Do not expect water sports during monsoon. We had visited during monsoon and the beach is amazing. Overall very calm and serene

Great beach and one of the safest in this part of the country. Crowded on weekends. Good sea food restaurants nearby. Worth visiting the place if you happen to be in this part of the country.

A really peaceful beach and one-of-its-kind offering relaxation and quality time around the holy town of Udupi. Horse and camel riding facilities are available. A traditional Shiva temple is just along the beach. One can buy ice creams as well. It is a delight to see native children playing in the waves of the sea. A state-of-the-art hotel is also... More
