“Not Clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

Not a very clean Beach, a great number of stalls close to the beach area selling music CDs, Rosary, Barber shops etc which is not apt for a beach area. Guess the beach is also small due to the Tsunami which affected this part of the world in Dec 2004

“Beach with a Dirty Access”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

Located near the famous church Vellankanni, the beach can be reached by walk through a row of shops. The wave is soft and goes over your feet like snow. But the beach is littered with garbage and waste. Therefore, one has to tread carefully till the shore is reached. The sand is soft. However, as the sun sets, the wave becomes stronger. Ships coming and exiting from the port of Nagapatinam can be found in the distance. The beach gets very attractive with a full moon in the sky. Do carry a white hat and adequate water and food. The cost of these near the beach is exhorbitant.
