Lovely beach to enjoy!

Very lovely beach to enjoy the evening! It's great experience dipping feet in on the shore experiencing waves and viewing the never thinning crowd!

I could say this is the cute little beach where you can spend nearly few hours. Lot of food shops to fill your stomach

A better option to chill out with family. You have plenty of options to eat, have fun, an exhibition and temples near by for most religions. Easy accessibility and walkable from bus station.
