Lighthouse Beach is beautiful at sunset. We were there on a Sunday evening and it was busy with tourists and locals. There are many seafood restaurants and shops.

Beautiful setting and clean beach with plenty of places to eat and drink. Only annoyance is the lifeguards who are constantly whistling at the Indian tourists who try to swim in the waters.

It’s a nice clean beach. There are quite a lot of sellers though. The sea is warm and nice but be careful of the undertide.

They are all different beaches, each worth a visit. Samudra beach is rocky and not much there. The lighthouse has great views. There is a lift to the top floor but then a steep ladder to the viewing platform.
