Agumbe is awesome and Malpe beach is amazing. Get the best of both. Here’s why?
A village located in the Shimoga district of Karnataka, Agumbe is about 360 km from Bangalore. Nestled in the bounty of Malnad region, Agumbe is among the places in India that receive very heavy rainfall earning it the name- ‘Cherrapunji of South’. The charming town is also where the famed Malgudi Days was shot.
Malpe Beach of Karnataka is one of the unexplored beaches in India. Located at a distance of 66 km from Mangalore and about 6 km from Udupi, Malpe Beach is an undefiled virgin beach. The beach has a never-ending coastline, which is surrounded by three rocky islands on the western side and an ideal destination for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
