We reached Udupi station by morning 7. It is a small station. We got fresh from the station and had breakfast from a small hotel there itself. There were lots of auto rickshaw available, but we decided to walk when we came to know that the bus stop is not too far. The moment we reached the bus stop, bus came to Udupi bus stand and we boarded the bus. Upon reaching the bus stand, we took the bus to Malpe beach. The bus took us to the beautiful beach which was not too rushy may be because it's early 9am in the morning. We sat there for a while and enquired about the boat to St Mary's Island. I was shocked to hear that it cost Rs 400 when I already was informed by my friends that it only cost Rs 250. Later on, we came to know that there's another boat service at the harbour which is at the other end of the beach. So we decided to walk enjoying the waves in the beach. Rs 250 is now increased to Rs 300. We took the ticket and we were informed that it takes 1hr up amd down to the island and you get 1 hour at the island. We reached the island. You can keep your bags outside the gate for Rs 20. It was very hot and the sun was shining bright. It is better to avoid this place at extreme summer and plan for the evening so that you can escape from the hot sun. We entered the island. It was extremely beautiful. The turquoise colour ocean and black stone was beautiful beyond words. Irrespective of the hot weather, the water was cool. One hour passed by so fast and we returned back to the beach. From there, we took an auto to the bus stop and later on a bus to Udupi bus stand. Had a lunch with rice, sambar, rasam, curd and payasam for just Rs 50 and then we started planning on our next destination. We decided to go to Gokarna by bus and walked from the hotel to bus stand. A bus was starting to move when we asked someone about the Gokarna bus, and the conductor of the moving bus called us and we ran to board the Gokarna bus.
