Next day around 8 AM in morning we reached Mangalore station and straight away headed to Summer Sand Beach Resort.
Our fisrt destination was Bekal fort, a pictersque old fort in Kerla ( very near to Kerala-Karnataka border). The main excitment to see the place was as "Tu Hi Re..." song from the bollywood movie was shot here. Fort was ok-ok stuff but the view of Arabian cost from the fort was awesome, wish I would have visited this place in monsoon. There is one small pasaage in fort which takes you to beach, again it was very clean and less crowdy unlike other tourist place. We spend some quality time there, enjoyed in some very big waves.
BY the time we came back to summer sand resort it was evening and we spend some really quality time at private beach while looking towards sunset.
Next Day our destination was Udupi and St Marry's island. We started early in morning and headed towards Udupi, Udupi is temple town and except from Sri Krishna Mandir and mouth watering Pure vegeterain food. My main interest was St. Marry's island which was one hour journey from Udupi. To reach island one need to go till Malpe beach and need to take ferry service from there. At first look St Marry's island looks like a perfect inhabitat island shown/read in movie/books. It was soothing an half an hour ride in ferry for island. Water was very clear and so was beach. Actually no one is allowed to stay there at night, first ferry starts in morning and last one from island is at 5 'o clock local time. We had good time there but wish we could have taken full loads of chilled beer and food. Its a perfect place to have beer and chill out under sun. There is no shop so better to carry food item with you.
