There are loads of beaches in udupi and one can go beach hopping if they prefer, but what really special about this place is that, here river Suvarna meets the Arabian Sea.

Chaturmukha Basadi also known as Kere Basadi, is a Jain temple located in varanga village in Udupi. This treasured temple dates back 850yrs ! and is testament to the rich art, history and heritage of India. The temple nestled in the middle of a lake offers peace and tranquility to the visitors.
5. Tea & Buns at Mithra Samaj – Shri Krishna Matha
Before one proceeds to relish the taste of Mithra Samaj, It would be a grave mistake to not talk about the beauty and magnanimity of Shri Krishna Matha, founded by Shri Madhvacharya in the 13th century, this is one of the most venerated temple dedicated to Lord Krishna. The temple has preserved its rich architecture which dates back hundereds of years and offers sublime atmosphere to its devotees.
While the temple feeds the inner soul of its devotees, its the Mithra Samaj that takes care of their tummies. The restaurant is very popular among locals and they don’t miss a chance to appreciate its satvik food (preprared without using Onion and Garlic) which is being served here for decades now, and while you’re here don’t miss out on trying their Manglore Buns which is packed with falvors of coastal Karnataka.
6. Sunset at Kapu Beach
Sandy beach + Panoramic view of Arabian Sea + A Lighthouse! exciting isn’t it!! That’s exactly what Kapu or Kaup beach offers. This gem of a spot is located just 13km from Udupi and dare I say, it is a picturesque wonderland. With a century old Lighthouse at its heart, the beach has an old worldly charm.
