This was really exceeding my expectations. In India, I have rarely been to a beach that has it all - cleanliness, safety, water sports, not a lot of crowd, quite time and a comfortable place to stay.

Beach is clean. You get local food near the beach. There are some basic rides which are not worth it. You get a magnificent views of St Mary's islands just off the coast. A boat ride to the islands is possible during daytime. It is supposed to be worth it but I have not visited the islands.

Malpe has always been a nice and clean beach and the local council has managed to keep it clean. Its a nice getaway from the hustling Udupi town. Just a 15 minutes drive from udupi. Enough parking is available at the beach. Was a bit disappointed to see people throwing rubbish in to the ocean. On your visit please make... More

You can take a ferry to St Mary's island from here. which is 20mins to half n hr water ride. Beach gets very hot is summers (obviously :)) so if you are planning to visit in... More

The beach looks so pretty blue. The sand is so creamy white and ultra fine. FInest beaches I have ever visited. This place looks like Goa beach, except that there is not so much of crowd here and you can enjoy peace and beauty!

I visited this beach in the month of April, place was hot as expected. However the beach is a good one, worth a visit if you are around the place and are a beach lover. The waves are good enough for a bath. There are some good eateries around the place where you can grab some good sea food. The... More

After juhu beach in mumbai, this was 1 of my favorite beaches in udupi. A must visit during childhood days. It was clean and less crowded earlier. With time the crowd has increased tremendously, beach activities maybe the reason. Interesting eateries alongside.

Its very good beach but choose time free of rush when there are no festivals in Udupi and better not onweekends. You will enjoy swimming, getting sun bath, you can take boat trip to St. Mary's island, etc.

One of the finest Beaches of the Coastal Belt. Make it a point to visit this place on a early morning,say between 6.30am-8.00am and avoid getting crowded later. During the early mornings, on a morning walk on the beach from one end to the other, you will come accross fishing by the fishermen. They are so courtious that they will... More

The once serene and silent beach these days has turned out to be a crowd puller and is jam packed over weekends and public holidays. The place offers you loads of exciting beach rides and games at a nominally hiked price .The street vendors dish up yummy bhels (the local version with loads of coconut oil and chilli powder) and...
