At one end of beach it's crowded with tourists swimming, playing ;hawkers selling street food. But at the other end its pristine and peaceful. Avoid going too far though. Beach was clean.

The beach is next to the Basilica and needs no special trip but the beach is not smooth so do not try to swim in the sea

I had been here coz I had some time to spare during my Velankanni visit. It wasn't amongst those memorable ones..It was crowded despite it being a weekday. There is enough parking space for four wheelers.. it is just 1-2 kms from the Velankanni Church.
