You can view mesmerizing sun set and waves splashing hitting the rocks. Clean beach lined with restaurants to enjoy dinner.

Beach is beautiful with a Wide Shore where people can enjoy the tides and can even bath. You'll find restaurants nearby. Leela Palace (5 Star Hotel) is at walking distance from here. Must visit beach..

The approach has a bit of walking to do and there needs to be a road for cars to approach nearer to the beach.

Beach was bit crowded. There is an opportunity to improve the services including restrooms. Boat ride was good though expensive. No shacks as such. No words to describe the sunset!

We were disappointed by the beach next to The Leela Raviz. It was dirty and plastic trash was around. There was a huge religious structure on the beach close by. The speedboats which took us out into the water were great.

Take a taxi / three wheeler- within thirty/ forty minutes you can reach the beach from airport.
