We woke up at 6 am in the morning and got ready by 7 am for the special plan. Mr Aldo had arranged a boat ride for us through the Suvarna river and exploring Udupi on water. I had no idea how fun this was going to be. It was a 2- hour boat ride covering No Man's island, the private lagoon, Hanging Bridge and the Delta point of Kodi Bengre beach. Delta point is where the Suvarna river meets the Arabian Sea and is so far my favorite spot in Udupi. The boat ride exposed us to some amazing flora and fauna. We saw mangroove plantations too. We were even lucky enough to catch fish by bare hands during the boat ride as the fishes were jumping on the waters.
I highly recommend you to explore Udupi via this boat ride as it takes you to a couple of offbeat places and offers you certain view points not accessible by roads.
After the boat ride, we went around Udupi to have breakfast in local Udupi hotels. Udupi is famous for its vegetarian restaurants and you can find a number of such restaurants in Bangalore.
We returned to the room after breakfast and decided to switch on the music system and have some fun time.
For lunch, I couldnt resist myself and visited Thimappa hotel again for Fish meals. That meal is so so delicious I just couldn't get over it. After lunch we decided to spend some time in Malpe beach and see the sunset at the Malpe seawalk.
We decided to visit the famous Krishna Matha in the evening, listen to the Aarti and get into the vibe of that place. We had our dinner at Mitra Samaj - famous for Dosa and Goli Baji.
We rushed back to our room as we had to board the bus at 10pm from Udupi service bus stand.
We returned to Bangalore Monday morning and thats how the trip ended but with a lot of memories.
I have uploaded a Youtube video on this entire travel of Udupi (Just search for "I am out of office Udupi" in case the link doesn't work)
