The beach is definitely well maintained and there are many water sports that one can try at this beach. A ferry ride to the St.Mary's island will cost you around 400 INR (Dec'1 6 price). There are many local buses plying to this beach from the main bus stand in Udupi. This is a place to visit in the evening,... More

The beach is well maintained and it's not dirty like many beaches we see in India, tends to get overcrowded in the evenings but it's ok, eating options are not much but many small eateries and resturants are around the beach area, st Mary's island is nearby which has to be accessed by a boat

This is a very well maintained beach in Udupi. You should definitely visit this beach and spend some time if you are visiting Mangalore or Udupi. So many activities can be done also i.e. boating, parachute etc.
