It is very clean and natural Chivala beach . You see lots of crabs and star fish . Snakes . One should go early in the morning even before sunrise to see the way fishing is done . Wonderful beach.

The waters here are green and hence visibility is not that good, but yes u do get a first hand experience of scuba diving and yes you do tend to enjoy even if you do not see much.. Bargain is a must..

Water is not quite suitable for scuba diving, it is not clean to see fish and corals neatly. It is safe for family and children. If you have travelled to Kerala or andaman, then this place is big disappointment.

The water is dark green in color, limited visibility, very limited fish species Locals say that this is because of overcrowding of the various scuba operators in the same area. They do not take you to deeper seas

Did snorkelling here with my dad, it was a nice experience. The guide was well trained and knew all the fishes we got to see. Recommend to do it in winter time Nov-Feb so that you get crystal clear water and good underwater visibility.

Scuba diving at the back of Sindhudurg fort is an amazing experience for a common man like me. Nearby other sports activity like parasailing, jet skiing, bump ride, banana rides are also great. Around 1800/- per head was charged for all these water sports activities...More
