What you see in this Saint Mary’s island Gallery:
A sunset on Saint Mary’s Island. This beautiful sunset was captured while travelling back on boat to Malpe Beach from Saint Mary’s Island. Malpe beach is 7 km from our Malpe homestay. The Boat ride costs Rs.200/= per person to & fro. It is a good 20 minute ride by boat one way, and the boat waits for you on the coast of the island. It is quite a feeling to see the boat marooned on the coast waiting for you to be back from your adventure on the island. A great experience!
A Turtle on Saint Mary’s Island. We found this beautiful turtle on the coast of Saint Mary’s Island. Beautiful creature!
A mystical shelter perched on top of Saint Mary’s Island.
Turtle Back Pattern on all rocks on Saint Mary’s Island. This is a special kind of rock found in only 3 places in the world. Formed from volcanic lava these uniquely shaped rocks look like natural pillars from the side and have a turtle back pattern at the top. Colorful salt and algae deposits on rocks. A beautiful golden horizon across the ocean.
Bengre Beach near Malpe Homestay: Also known as the Delta Beach. A special feature of this beach is that it showcases a magnificent delta formation where the river Suvarna (Golden River) meets the Arabian Sea. There is a point on this beach where you can actually see the river on the right and the sea on the left merging into a marvellous water body in the center. This is also a hotspot for catching fish. So if you have a line, bring it on! The Kodi Bengre beach is about 10 km from Balakrishna Malpe Homestay

The beach hosts a superbly maintained lighthouse from the British Era. This lighthouse is still fully functional and one can see its huge lights going around after sunset. The view of the beach, the arabian sea and the Kaup village is fascinating from atop the lighthouse. If you’d like to enjoy the view, make sure you reach here before 5 pm. The gates close by 6 pm. There are also some huge rocks on the Beach here that allow you to get a great view of the sea and the shore.
