I visited this beach in my recent visit to Gangavaram port and I was amazed after seeing that there was no dut. However, the port is handling bulk material but very minimal dust, which is also helping to clean the beach.

Had a pleasant time with family at this beach which isn't very crowded as the other beaches. The waters are shallow and no problem venturing into the sea.
