The beach is small but pretty. You will have to climb 100+ steps to the top of the lighthouse to get a good view of the sealine.

The beach here is small, was much less populated than other beaches. The lighthouse gives a great view of the sea and the surrounding areas. The place is highly recomended.

It was the month of June and the only downside was the heavy rain showers that occur incessantly in Mangalore. Winds were strong and chilly. But the stormy weather conditions and roaring seas only made the view more magnificent!
