This is at the beach area, so you can enjoy the beach as well as the sub marine. It is very interesting to see the life inside water.

Being a Submariner myself I was awestruck by the innovativeness of the project. To put an actual submarine on beach and facilitate walk through experience for the public is a great job done. Well done Navy and GVMC. Once in a lifetime experience!

Not an experience that you can get easily.. You can actually explore an actual submarine that was operation and served India.
