There is a quite and beautiful beach nearby. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse before 5pm. The view was amazing. I wish I could have stayed for the sunset.

It is a combination of a very beautiful beach and a beautiful Lighthouse and the experience becomes so much greater. Surathkal beach is so beautiful in itself with its miles of sand, beautiful palm trees, rocks which spot beautiful birds perched on itself, sight of parked ships in the distance and above all this beautiful Lighthouse. From the lighthouse one... More

There is a beautiful each and i have written a separate review for the same. In short, the beach is simply awesome and not a view to be missed.

This is a nice place to spend time especially in the evening. As you can see the sunset over the horizon. There is a Lighthouse which closes at 5:00 pm and after that you can spend time sitting on the rock next to the Lighthouse or can take a walk on the Beach... There is Entry Fee for the Lighthouse...... More

In NITK suratkal area, wonderful place. You have got stone rocks in the sea as well as a temple on huge rocks. Over all a beautiful place full of nature. This is my favorite beach. You can sit on a rock & feel great!

Get a Brilliant view of National Institute of Technology behind you and Arabian sea in front as you hold on to the rails while you are buffeted by strong winds. Brilliant scenery but you are only allowed on top of the lighthouse till 6:15 pm so trudge down to the rocky beach after that to catch rest of the sunset.
