It’s really hard to imagine that a beautiful place such as this exists in Karnataka and is just about 66 kms from Mangalore.
The best thing that happened when we visited this place was that there was not a soul in the entire island other that boat-man and us, it was
completely uninhabited!!!
After our visit to St. Mary’s Island we had a quick lunch at Udupi and then headed towards Kumta on route to our next destination Gokarna.
