The sight from the lighthouse during the rains is also impressionable as one can feel the great intensity of waves crashing at the rocks on the shore.

Visitors can spend the day at the beach and head towards the lighthouse in the evening to bring a spectacular end to an exciting day. It takes not more than 30 minutes to reach Kaup from Udupi.
