@St.Marys Island

Bang in middle of Malpe Beach is the St.Marys Island. The ferry ride from Malpe beach to island is a feast to eyes(few pics posted in the last two posts are from this ferry ride) n after a point soothing to soul.

While in a beach, you will have to sieve the sand for shells, this island is literally covered with shells tht u hv to sieve the thru the shells to see the sand! Another interesting aspect on this island are the natural basaltic columnar rock formation in a hexagonal form - supposedly the only one in India! You can read more abt the place here



Linking this to AtoZ challenge - I is for Island.
