If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet, affordable, and beautiful stay, this is the place.It's located right on top of a cliff overlooking the beach. Eagles coast all day along the edge of the cliff and dive for fish and crabs. The main shopping and restaurant area is only 100rs and 15 min away. The food is also cooked fantastically.

Property is on the cliff and just next to the beach. The view from the property is stunning , we have to walk a bit(10 Min) to reach the beach. Beach side is not crowded and it is very clean. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Only downside is the food.
