The beach is just superb. The rocks and the light house add to the beauty to the beach. Good photo opportunities. One can explore the typical country side with coconut grooves and south Indian Temples. A must see for Manipal/ Udupi visitors.

Not as crowded as Malpe, Kapu is a tiny beach with hills, rocks and a nice lighthouse where you can watch the evening sunset. There are nice restaurants nearby selling local delicacies too.

I had first visited this beach in December 2016 and from then I make it a point every time I go to Manipal I visit this place. The most exciting part about the beach is the light house, the view from the light is just...More
