Kaup (village)

Kaup, pronounced as Kapu in the local Tulu language, is a village or a small town in Udupi district of Karnataka, India. It lies on the way between Udupi and Mangalore beside National highway 17. A road from Kaup goes to interior places like Manchakal, Shirva.

There is a beach on the shore of the Arabian Sea and a lighthouse. Many films have been shot at this location. Kaup has three Marigudi which attracts devotees from far away places.

It is about 15Km from Manipal and is a favorite hangout for students. The beach also sports a shack and a bar with seating in the open sky.

Though the sea is mostly calm all year round, there have been isolated cases of drowning in this beach
