Not sure whats going on with this beach. Has potential to be nice but there is just nothing there. The council should pitch in to either import some new sand or grade the beach to make it more pleasant. They should also rebuild the pier as i think this would be a great attraction

Cleaner than many other beaches that I have visited in India (Puri, I'm looking at you), but nothing particularly special. There is a decent walking path along the road, but it is very windy and disconnected and the road itself is in really bad shape. Also there are not enough lights, so be very careful when walking along it at... More

A nice beach. The beach face drops steeply which makes for huge waves. Great for sunset photography!

Nice place.... Not easy place to swim. Awesome in the early morning when the local guys come here to play footie,badminton and volley ball... I abandoned my early run to up their offer to join in. They really are super competitive and pretty decent players too.....

Compared to other beaches of Kerala like Kovalam or Varkala, this beach is not worth a visit, especially when you have the world famous backwaters in Alappuzha, which are definitely a must visit. The beach is a flat, sandy stretch, unclean and poorly maintained. There is a nice children's park nearby, with well maintained flowering trees and play equipments. Unfortunately,... More

Found this beach to be ok still a lot of litter around including broken bottles. But I have read that they(the authorities) are trying to do something about it - I did see signs around saying not to litter but it might take more that this.
