Visited during the monsoon season when there were high tides. Police didnt allow to get in the sea. However, the remaining of the beach was too dirty. Lots of shacks available for food and shopping.

It is not much crowded like Goa. Away from the commotion of crowded beaches, grab a bottle of beer and enjoy the calmness of the beach gazing into to horizon.

I m a little late i guess.. to answer your query.. but yes they are functional. For the entire package they ask some where around 2500 but can be bargained to 1800-2000.. Which includes 4-5 water rides.

As others mentioned, its better to leave early. Since it is summer, if you can leave by 7 PM it should be definitely safe. There will be lot of tourists in that place in the evening. Nothing to worry.
