“Decent crowd but improper maintenance”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Comparing to 2008 - February, the beach has developed far better in 2010. In a typical evening you can see a lot of youngsters hanging out with friends, senior citizens having a relaxing walk, parents watching their children getting delighted on seeing the crowd,...

Compared to Marina, this beach has got at least 40-50 dining outlets (including cafe's & ice-cream parlors) in the road adjacent to the beach and also some good options in the parallel street. But if you dine in a wrong restaurant, you may end up paying the bill in 4 digits for 2 people that too for an average quality. I would advice people to dine only in some good restaurants like Anjappar, Cascade, Kariakal Chettinad, Punjabhi Dhaba, Murugan Idly Kadai, as you'll at least feel the value of the money spent even though its a bit expensive.




Compared to Marina, you can see a decent crowd

“This is the best beach in Chennai”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

Not too crowded, good restaurants around, ideal for week-end hangout. The beach is also quite clean. This is the best beach out of the main I have visited in Chennai. Though not so good if you think to take a dip in water.
