It is said that the famous Vasco da Gama first stepped on St. Mary’s Island when he came to India. This island is a group of four islets and is known especially for its distinctive geological formation of columnar basaltic lava. Formed around a billion years ago, these rock formations are so remarkable, they must be seen to be believed. The best attraction is a site where rocks have formed in a hexagonal column.

This quaint island off the coast of Karnataka is the perfect destination for relaxation. The white sand beach, rock monoliths, the birds and the occasional dance of the dolphins is entertaining and beautifully soothing. Watching the sunset from this island is a must, so try and plan your trip to this pretty island accordingly.
