Kapu Beach, Udupi

4.6
#2 of 7 in Parks in Udupi
Enjoy the quiet, unspoiled atmosphere of Kapu Beach, where you can walk the soft, white sands as the Arabian Sea pounds powerfully on eroded, rocky outcrops. Observe majestic palms leaning in from the edge of the beach, and colorful boats resting on the beach, ready to bear fishers out onto the waters. Be sure to check out the lighthouse standing vigil on the boulders: climb to the top for sweeping views across the beach. Work out when and for how long to visit Kapu Beach and other Udupi attractions using our handy Udupi sightseeing planning app .

  • The most beautiful beach which is having its fair share of commercialization, and I'm sure everyone will love this. It has a light house and few boulders which can be climbed but not recommended because few of them experience high waves, are in water entirely just off the beach. The view from light house is something you'll remember for a life time. The food options are good, despite being little on the variety. so have a cup of coffee or tea chilling on the benches, sipping on the beauty and your drink too.
  • With its stretches of white sands, perfect location and idle atmosphere,Beautiful beach & clean water. Well maintained. There is a lighthouse in top. Nice view. Crowded beach. Amazing sunset. Rocks climbing is very fun. Half an hour ride from udupi. Must visit family and friends.
  • Beautiful view. There is a lighthouse and stones on which you can hang around with friends. Great view of the sea. Also there is seatings and nicely built shacks. Place is clean and nicely maintained.
  • An amazing place, best for beach lovers! I went on a weekday, so it was less crowded (only us and another group) but it was safe. The lighthouse there is the one that makes it different from other beaches. Climb up on the top and feel yourself! Best for a getaway if you are a college student around.
  • My favourite beach. The best beach near Udupi. Very clean. Scenic beach. Lighthouse looks good. You have restaurants which serve good food. Must visit guys. Please don’t miss.
