lovely sunset view, relaxed mahatma statue welcoming made my evening that day except for the maintenance and availability of the changing rooms... lots of local schools take children there for picnic and hence changing rooms availability after a bath/swim will be very difficult on holidays and weekends.. so please be informed...

But you have the option to... More

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.

We visited this beach on 31st dec. and found it to be just an average beach. Water on this beach is a bit muddy and the possible reason could be the ferries being used to carry people to the near by island. Water sports like the jet ski and para sailing are also available here. You can also get the... More
