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.

It is located close to the church. The sea food stalls near the beach serve really good food. Beach is not clean.

We went to Velankanni beach to spend some time. The beach is nice and clean. The time spent here allowed us to relax our minds and enjoy nature.

Not a great beach, over crowded and congested. Beaches must be visited in Goa, not this one if your planning to go to a beach.

Never expect the calmness of any other beach when you visit Velankanni beach. It is usually overcrowded due to the influx of pligrims. So one need to have just a visit without much expectations. We didnt spent much time there.The way leading to/out of the beach has shops on either side, selling toys and other not-so-costly items. The beach has... More
