St Marys Island
This tiny virgin beach characterized by the emerald translucent water of the Arabian Sea and shimmery golden sand is a 6km boat ride from Udupi. The main hallmark of this island is the peculiar formation of hexagonal basalt rocks that have formed inimitable vertical blocks surrounding the island. In addition to it, tall green coconut trees, red crabs, exclusive rare shells lying along the coast and an endless placid view from the landmass, all of it contribute to the beauty of this spotless beach, making it one of the most magnificent beaches around Malpe. December is touted to be the best season to visit this Island.
