You can reach Samudra beach from boat service. Normally people take a back water trip including a trip to the beach. Backwaters and Sea meets nearby and its another kind of experience. Beach is good but closes after sunset.

It is an unfortunate beach. Gets less appreciation than it deserves on account of being right opposite two of the best beaches in the country - Kovalam and Lighthouse beach. Samudra is a good beach.

It appears you are confusing beach itself with some park. There is no park as such. There is only samudra beach and it is public beach, free for all. Hope it helps.
