St. Mary's Island, Udupi

3.8
#2 of 7 in Parks in Udupi
As part of a group of four islands of the same name, St. Mary's Island offers a great opportunity to enjoy islands untouched by the impact of civilization. You won't find any buildings or businesses on the island; the only structures allowed are a few covered pavilions and benches. Bring your own water and sunscreen, which you'll need in the heat and won't find on the island. Walk around the island to see the untouched nature and enjoy volcanic rocks in peculiar formations. Take a dip at one of the beaches, but watch out for jellyfish as you swim. Add St. Mary's Island to your Udupi travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Udupi travel planner.
