“Relaxing beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

A nice beach; a good place to relax and unwind. Good restaurants and not too busy. It was great to not have any vehicles on the beach. It also has a good variety of juices available everywhere as well, it overall made for a relaxed atmosphere and also lot of opportunities for cheap souvenir shopping.

“Good place to hangout with friends/family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

we spent lots of time in the sea. Tides were good enough to enjoy surfing on small surf board which is available in the beach. It is quit clean and safe. Lifeguard post is present with the PRESENCE of lifeguards :)

“A black sand beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This beach is a cute crescent with blu-ish water. The surrounding area is lovely with a lighthouse on one end and a large pile of boulders at the other and palm trees all about. I did not like that there was black sand on the beach however. That always detracts for me. There was really no one swimming or laying on the beach either.

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Even though a little overcrowded, the beach was good fun. It was neat & clean and it was heartening to see a few lifeguards close by. You can hire a beach chair for Rs.100 per hour, and the rates for speedboats are totally negotiable. Great experience!
