Nowadays it is getting crowder there, not much facilities to accommodate the visitors, not really a good place especially with families. I would recommend kuzhuppilly beach near to the same

Fish markets, Chinese fishing nets and local life. Not the cleanest of places but a must see. Take a walk and enjoy the life.
