  • It is a good beach but little dangerous than the nearby beaches. People comes here mostly in the evenings. Children loves to play here. Also, people comes here for meetups, dance practice and all. The beach is maintained and kept very nicely. Almost 5 live guards are here most of the time to ensure safety. Since it is a dangerous beach, people are not allowed to go much into the sea. One can also experience a horse riding here.

  • Good and well maintained beach. All the surroundings and beach areas are good for a weekend hangout. Cabs are too late and costly in nights . Use KSRTC to reach here. So that you can see the airport view too. Cabs might not be able to show them in small heights.
