Blessed with an endless stretch of golden sand, graciously swaying palm trees, the clear blue sky, and the gurgle of the sea, Malpe is an ideal picnic spot with its silvery, virgin beach. It is about 6 km from Udupi. Breathtaking views of the sea are obtained from the beach. St Mary's Island is the nearby attraction, which is only a boat ride away. Best time to visit the place is October to January.
