This beach is relatively less frequented. More needs to be done to make it a popular tourist destination. The waves lashing at the kala patthar provides an amazing view. The sound... read more

Must visit this beach which is gaining popularity now.I feel it is the second in list after Elepanta Beach, with lot of dead corals and shells on the beach.The waters is very clear and rocks on one end is ideal for sitting and admiring the sea.Just outside they sell fresh fruits and coconuts.

Nothing great in this beach. East facing, and given that sunrise is extremely early, almost impossible to catch it. Beach is quite small.

This beach is relatively less frequented. More needs to be done to make it a popular tourist destination. The waves lashing at the kala patthar provides an amazing view. The sound of the sea, the clear waters, brilliant sands and the noise of waves hitting the stones, perfecto!!!

It was some six kilometres from our resort namely Blue Bird. The auto here claims Rs.400/- (to and from with waiting charge) and the claim appeared to be irrational for such short distance to us. We thus opted for being a bit adventurous and went to the opposite side to reach the market. From the market one can go for... More

Compared to radhanagar beach, Kaala patthar is smaller, more crowded and also has more than the average level of trash found anywhere on the island. Best known for it's sunrise, you can avoid it if you are staying in a beachfront resort that faces east.

This beach is an oasis! We rode our bicycles down to this little path, then walked down about 10-15 minutes and there was absolutely nobody around! It was so peaceful and quiet. Loved it.

Average, rocky beach. Frequented by lot of families and hence mostly crowded. There are some snacks/ coconut vendors by the beach. One can spend some time here but not the place to laze around at.

No comparison with Radhanagar. Although the drive in a scooty can be relaxing. Its a very small beach full of tourists. Lots of COCONUT around. Not worth the Rs.500 the car will take per spot.

So we planned to go and see sunrise there at 6 am. the beach was clean and water was turquise blue. we clicked some of the very good pics on this beach for sunrise.there were thousands of snails , few crabs, water cucumber,...
