Really nice beach, there is a fake light house, kids will enjoy. Lots of eateries around the beach and you will get free seafood there.

We have been here many times, it is such fun. If you enjoy people watching this is the place to go. The beach is kept pretty clean the sea is always so warm but there are a lot of dangerous under currents so have to be careful. It is wonderful watching the fishermen bringing in their catch which is usually quite pitiful and seeing the children on school trips as they see the sea for the first time.
The shops are not up to much but then it not a place to go to to shop. Oh to be there now!

The beach is good and clean compared to other popular beaches in India. However, its very crowded, especially in the evenings. There are eateries all over, but most of them have bars and we avoided dining there with our young kiddo.

Surrounded both sides by the formation of rocks, the waves can turn a bit nasty for those who try to swim or bath near the rock edges, since the waves can be as high as 10 feet. The beach security personnel keep a constant vigil and warn the passengers who try to swim near the rock edges. Splendid view of the light house from the beach.

Busy but worth it. Plenty of places to eat and people watch. Nice beach and good sea for swimming. Lots of wifi available. A few shops too.
