Kapu Beach, Udupi

4.6
#2 of 7 in Parks in Udupi
Beach Nature / Park
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. Put Kapu Beach and other Udupi attractions into our Udupi tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Really beautiful clean beach. The lighthouse at the beach is quite sometime. Even if you don't get to go to the top, the view of Arabian sea from behind the lighthouse. Light house is closed in the afternoon and opens again at 5 pm. A must go place.
  • Good place to spend weekend with family and kids. Experience the view from Light House, it's good ,if you don't have height fear. Eateries and parking facility available. It's a quit big beach .
  • It's one of the most scenic beaches. The view from lighthouse is magnificent. The rocks on the beach add to the beauty of the beach. The sunset on this beach is really enjoyable.
  • Perfect place for beach lovers.with it's awesome sunrise and sunset... Wonderful to watch the nature scenes. Superb place. With peace of mind
  • The cleanest beach I have ever been to. You can enjoy to the fullest here, not very crowded. Yet to be an explored beach. The walk along the shoreline is one to be cherished for long.
