The water are sooo clear :) I simply loved the 2 shade affect in water at time of high tide. This is ideal beach for snorkling and all the water activty.

Blue - green sea with corels visible to the naked eye. A walk on the white sand of the beach refreshes you. The water is a beautiful colour. The beach is lovely in all weathers.

Nice to visit this island but after visiting so many beaches this beach is nothing great but only one major attraction is nature rock bridge and live corals and many star fish you can touch.

Its a small island surrounded by blue clear waters. You can go snorkeling here , it will be really great experience. There's a Natural Bridge which really looks great , but you need to walk on dead corals to reach that place and during low tide only. And there's a pristine white sand beach . You can try out the...

On late winter and monsoon, you can find flying fishes in the middle of the journey. If you have a fantastic luck,... More
