PADUKERE: Everyone knows the Maple beach near Udupi. Thus it has gotten commercialized with a parking fee, WiFi facility, lifeguards and what not. But right next to Malpe is the Padukere beach, which is now connected thanks to the construction of a bridge, and people don’t have to rely on a ferry. You have to pass through the backwaters where you find numerous boats tethered at the Malpe port, which make for a picturesque setting of the sunset. You can see a few islands from this beach, watch the sunset behind them and thanks to less footfall even spot a starfish or two.
