It was a usual day where I decided to explore Udupi and the first place that came to my mind was St. Mary’s Island. I read about it a lot of times but never got an opportunity to visit it. I started my journey with my sister and mother. We took the bus to Malpe Beach from Udupi Bus Stand which costs around Rs. 15/- per person. The bus usually drops you at the Malpe Beach entrance from where you have to walk almost 20-25 minutes to the Boating Service Office where the boats to St. Mary’s Island are available. If you don’t want to have a long walk by the sea, you can always get down at the Malpe Bus Stop and walk for a little by left towards the fishing Boats area and ship building yard to reach the destination directly.
