Cheapest enjoyment place at Chennai for a team of people. You can stroll in the evening & well crowded area. Not safe in night time. Recreation for children. Morning time, several people are going for health walk.

It is an amazing experience for anyone visiting Chennai. From the road to the sea, it must be a few KM's. You could easily build a few beach volleyball complex's around the place.
