Kapu Beach, Udupi

4.6
#1 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 .

    Better to visit at any time of the day. Even at night. Awesome view from the Light house. Climb and get to the other side of the beach on the right. Rock Climbing is fun. Tread carefully.  more »

    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.

    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.

    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.
