About six km from the temple town of Udupi, Malpe's beautiful beach attracts several tourists to the town. While fishing
in the harbor is prominent, there are several other things you can do in the town. The Vadabhandeshwara Temple, dedicated
to Lord Balrama (brother of Lord Krishna) is one of the most popular attractions in the town.
St. Mary's Island or Coconut island is one of the twenty six geological monuments in India and is a cluster of four
islands. Beautiful to look at and be on, the islands pull in a large number of tourists every year.
