this beach is the nearest tourist destination near to velankanni church. the cleanliness of this beach and beach side is very poor and market is near to this beach. visitors to the church may avoid this beach. the beach side shops are economic for shopping.

It's a small beach with very poor maintenance. Looks dirty all around. Anyway if you are on a pilgrimage just peek in for time pass. There's nothing great.

Ideal place to stay is MGM residency or Chandra palace which are best of the lot in that area
