I enjoy swimming in the sea and this could not ne done at Balacalva which was quite dissapointing. Not interesting for children either.

We spent a couple of evenings on this beach . Easy access for the nearby hotels. Clear water and calm waves. Lots of stray dogs around. Not every one is a dog lover , but if you see them show them some kindness .

Small sandy beach which was very quiet with lovely views out onto the Indian Ocean. Waters are fairly shallow so good for a paddle or swim.
