- St. Mary's Island

St. Mary's Island St. Mary's Isles (Latitude 13° 20' 60" N; Longitude 74° 40' 60" E ) are a group of small islands lying a little to the north of the port of Malpe 7 kms form Udupi. Vasco-da-Gama landed in 1498 on one of these islands which he called `EI Padron de Santa Maria'. It is from this that these islands got their present name. They are just a few scattered projections of rock rising out of the western or Arabian Sea around Malpe.

The northern-most island is about a square mile in area and not more than 250 yards in width. It has coconut gardens which make it the shadiest of all the  islands and give it a true South Sea colour. The island is noted for its famous basalt rocks which Kulkunda, where a large cattle fair is held at the time of the have crystallized into columns and split into hexagonal mosaic. It is a really geological monument and tourists heaven. 

The islands hold out possibilities of being developed into a popular holiday resort.

Vasco-da-Gama landed in 1498 on one of these islands

this is the only spot in India where basaltic rocks show up such peculiar formation.
