We had been to the beach at night... Very dirty and unhygienic.. There are fish stalls, please do not eat there.

too crowded with dirty water - waste floating- lot of people at one spot - all kinds of waste found in the water - more over the path towards the beach with hundreds of shops throw out waste on the road and are blown into the beach by the wind, not good for a swim

I have been visiting Velankanni for many years. Hygiene has been one of the worst in the country.

The entry point to the beach is too crowded. The beach is also a bit dirty with all the plastic and garbage thrown. Roadside Stalls, vendors, etc made the place too cramped. Waters were calm. Needs monitoring on the beach front and also on the entry/pathway

Gets better only late but it gets dark as this also is crowded. The little time during the sunset, the scene is worth watching. Amazing culmination of moon and sun seperated by water level.
