This beach is 66 km north of Mangalore and 6 km from Udupi.Malpe with its sheltered harbour makes a quiet beach retreat, just six kilometres away from Udupi, the temple town, renowned for a fascinating idol of Lord Krishna. It is a popular picnic spot due to the pristine beauty and peaceful surrounding of its virgin beach. The endless stretch of golden sand, swaying Palm trees, clear blue sky and the gurgle of the sea attracts tourists to this spot. Between October - January is the best time to visit this place. The St Mary's Island is another delightful holiday destination. It is just a boat ride away.
Close to Malpe is Ullal, yet another beach resort, the silvery beaches of which command breathtaking views of the sunset, especially, when viewed through the casuarina groves.
