Udupi

Though its cuisine has spread throughout the country and beyond, Udupi retains a small-town charm.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Maravanthe Beach and Bahubali Monolith. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Malpe Beach and Tannirbhavi Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Udupi: Kodachadri (in Shimoga) and Panambur Beach (in Mangalore). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Kapu Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Krishna Temple, admire the landmark architecture of Venugopal Temple, and stroll through St. Mary's Island.

To find photos, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, read Udupi vacation planner.

Traveling by car from Gokarna to Udupi takes 4 hours. You'll have a few hours on the 10th (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling to Kannur.

A cultural capital on the state's relatively quiet northern coast, Kannur has long been associated with textile production and temple rituals, earning it the nickname, the "Land of Looms and Lores."

We've included these beaches for you: Thottada Beach and Ezhara Beach. Visiting Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach and Kavvayi Islands will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: stroll through Payyambalam Beach, contemplate the long history of Fort St. Angelos, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and enjoy the sand and surf at Ettikulam Beach.
