After visiting Krishna Temple, we visited Malpe beach. It is 8 kms from Krishna temple. The beach was very neat and enjoyed the sand. My son Rishikesh thoroughly enjoyed visiting this beach and played a lot in the water. That day i believe the waves were little more stronger than the Murudeshwar beach on that day (7 th February 2015).... More

Yes, I have decided to go St.Mary island.

Used it as transit to reach St mary island. Nothing much here. Ferry to St Mary island needs to be taken from here. Have some sporting activities, though i never availed.

If you visit on a weekend as we did you can mix with the large number of locals and domestic tourists. It is fun to see them really enjoy this place. The beach is very long with nice white sand and swimming.

Wonderful experience. Just needs little to be maintained. Nice water sports which attracts everyone's attention. Must visit in Udupi.

Malpe beach is a beautiful beach in Udupi. Plan your travel after or before monsoon. Most of the water sports are closed and ferry to St.Marry's Island do not operate during that period.
