Famous for its tranquil atmosphere, the beach has a surprisingly robust package of attractions. It faces the Arabian Sea, making it one of the best locations in the city to view the sunset. The famous Chinese Fishing Nets are on these beach, as is a lighthouse. Lined up along the shore are colonial-era bungalows, giving the location a nice upscale vibe. Fast food vendors crowd the area near the ruins of the now vanished Fort Emmanuel. In the right season you can spot dolphins in the water. There are actually two beaches, and the beach walkway stretches from the Chinese Fishing Nets to the smaller beach. The Vasco de Gama square is the best place to be if you want to photograph the nets; be there are sunset. But you should start your walk from Jawahar Park, a small and beautiful and shady space. The Parade Grounds are where the Dutch and British would drill their military forces, and where the Tricolor was raised after Independence; it is now a sports field.
