  • The best place to hangout in Chennai. Hands down ,toy would want to spend every evening there. Super romantic. The morning sunrise is brilliant. They also have car free sundays, where in vehicles are not permitted up to 11 I'm the area. A kids can play, ride cycles, there is flash mob, skits and people can have a good time.

  • No matter what the situation is just catch up here with friends, families and relatives. One of the most enchanting place. Games are available. Delicious seafood and snacks. Restaurant to 2/4 wheeler parking. And what not ? Potato springs are my favourite. Good place for photography.

  • Nice beach. Frequented by the locals. Sea fish available cooked. Only plastic chairs available for sitting that too if u order something from the food stalls. Veg and non-veg options available. Good to visit in the evening. Day time very hot.

  • It's a wide beach with good amount of space to chill out, has a lot of food joints and restaurants around the beach.There are also spaces for children to enjoy like a small amusement and fun area. It still can be improved and needs a bit of attention from govt, NGOs n public to make and keep it clean.

  • It was clean place. We went bit late but still enjoyed it. Good time would be to reach by 4 or 5 pm. There are many eating joints nearby to make it worth visiting and to spend wonderful evening
