We were supposed to visit this beach after having gone through scuba diving earlier that day. And frankly we werent looking forward to spending the day getting tanned in the hot sun on the way to this beach by a open motor boat. But once we reached this place we totally loved it. The water is very clear. The beach... More

This beach is not accessible on vehicle and route is very bad for walking. Only for die hard beach fans and not so attractive

Everyone has one or the other activities to take part and enjoy the new experience. Fee charged seem to be on higher side especially charging for sea walk video,

Too many people for a small place. Not much to see in snorkelling. Avoid this place. Spending another day at Radhanagar would be a better call....

This beach nice long water line with clear water. But if your lucky you can see elephant. Its not like that this beach is full of elephants. Sometime they bring elephant on to the beach for dense forest. In past elephants were used here to cut and bring the wood.

Too crowded to enjoy. The snorkeling location was superb but using an inflatable tube for snorkeling was a bit awkward.

Another good place for snorkeling, scuba diving, undersea walking besides riding activites like water scooter, speed boats etc. You can reach this beach entire through boat or a 1 kilometer trek. Both are excellent ways to reach here. If you go by boat, snorkeling is complementary. You can spend around 3 good hours here & enjoy all the activities.

If you want to enjoy Water sports and activities, this is one place to have them all at one place. You can play in the clear water sitting by Sea shore, or explore the corals via snorkelling or Sea walk. Scuba Diving was not available there. I personally preferred Scuba Diving more than Sea Walk (both are at almost comparable... More
