India is blessed with some lovely beaches along its long coastline. While the beaches in Goa is well known and popular, there are many hidden gems yet to be explored.
Kapu or Kaup beach on the west coast of India in the southern State of Karnataka is one such unexplored gem. A lovely beach with a small hillock in the corner with a lighthouse atop. Built by British in early nineteenth century, it is still a functional light house. This picture was clicked just before sunset when we were there few months ago.
There are no places to stay on the beach and the best stay options are at Udupi which is 10 KMs away.
