Dirty and full of litter.... didn't want to go in and take a bath in it.... It would be so much more pleasant if it were a clean beach... Really disappointed!

Excellent, would have appreciated if the guide explained at a slightly lower pace. But brilliant maintenance and maintaining a decomissioned submarine. Overall, if anyone has any inclination towards marine and navy, this is a must watch

beach was good, no changing rooms, no food to eat, but small shops are there to drink cooldrink and some lays. If tourism people provided some changing rooms and some hotels to eat food.then this place will be a good place to stay.I enjoyed a lot in beach.
