Very good place to hangout with family and friends. Can have variety of food from Thalappakatti to KFC and sitting in the beach breeze is a nice experience

Its one of the oldest beach in chennai. This has array of food options and time pass available for visitors. I love sitting near the ocean and enjoying my evenings. Checkout the bee line of shops in the adjacent road for some good food.

Cafés by the beach side, beach side walk trail, clean beach. Only issue is the beach is becoming more and more crowded. But if u don't mind that, this is an awesome stretch to unwind n chill
