Malpe beach is easily accessible from Udupi and Manipal. It isn't very crowded and nice to be at, however, early in the morning it is little dirty which is cleaned by laborers subsequently. There are small stalls to get eatables, bathroom and toilets are there too. You could get to meet local fishermen and gain knowledge of local fishery industry... More

Malpe beach is an apt place to grab a corn cob, walk lightly in the waves and watch a sunset.. It is only 8-10 km from Udupi so one can easily mix a heritage trip with some beach based relaxation

Malpe is a lovely beach for an outing with friends. It's clean and the water is generally calm. The sand is soft, but beware of crabs. Definitely visit it.

Visiting Malpe beach has been an experience and we visit it whenever we are in Udupi. Malpe is around 5-6 KM away from Udupi town and Malpe is a major fishing center. One can see hundreds of boats of various sizes and fishermen around. The beach water is not that deep and one can easily play in these water; not... More

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.
