At the mouth of the Malpe River, about 6km from Udupi, is the natural harbour of Malpe, an important fishing centre that enriches Karnataka's coastline with its fabulous beach. The endless stretch of golden sand, graciously swaying palm trees, clear blue sky and the gentle murmur of the sea set the perfect mood for an idyllic holiday. Across the bay is the island of Darya Bahadurgarh. Be sure to visit the Balarama Temple and Malpe's oldest tile factory, set up by the Basel Mission.
Beaches are popular for a reason as they provide ample recreational opportunities for kids and adults alike. While kids frequent beaches due to their love for the waves and the never ending stretches of sand, adults visit beaches as they provide an escape from the rigorous routine of daily life.
The Malpe Beach is one of a kind, where you can fully enjoy the rest and peace that you require together with nature and relish every single moment.
