A beautiful sandy beach which stretches from north to south. There is a great lighthouse which is situated on a rock from which you can see very far to inland Indian jungle and hills and the coast.

The Kapu beach is a must visit place if you're traveling around Udupi, a nice getaway for families! It's very scenic and there's a nice little lighthouse you can climb onto as well

There are several beaches in Mangalore / Udupi area... But this one is must-visit for the light house. Couple of hundred steps to climb - but the view from top is worth the effort.

I have been to several beachs in the country, from Goa to Andamans...beaches in the east coast and those in the west. Beaches in Udupi... like Kapu, Malpe are the best that i ve ever come across. Very neat and clean... gud approach road, gud parking, lots of water sports at Malpe. Highly recommended.

Went to this place on our visit to Udupi. Had a 15 mins stop here., one part of the beach is rocky, but was a good place to visit. The property is being developed by government to make it a tourist point.
