This is a very good beach near Udupi. It's a lot less crowded than Malpe and a lot cleaner. This beach also has a lighthouse which offers awesome views.

This beaches 12 km from udupi and not very common among tourists. Less number of shops are there but great place for photos. Lighthouse is there and beware of swimming as the beach is deep.
