A little crowded but it's a must visit location for thrill seekers. Offers a wide range of activities like snorkelling , sea walk (first in India) which by the way was an out of this world experience. 😬The only drawback was the changing room 🙁. The boat ride was fun too.

This Place is a 20 Minute drive in boat from Havelock but worth it. We did Snorkelling there and the underwater view were superb. photo and video recording is available there. Scintillating coral and fishes view.

Not sure if it will be open for visit at all times. I visited Havelock twice. One it was allowed to go there and at other time it wasn't. Best place for snorkeling. Water is very salty so get ready for tanning. Must go if its allowed.

Amazing place. After 45min trek we reached a beach having snorkeling spots just 20m from the beach. Just you need snorkeling equipment and life jacket to explore a beautiful life just 3 to 10 ft deep. Many species of colourful corals and fishes are seen. This is one of the best spot. The guides take rs300 to rs500 and they... More

By far best for underwater activities like scuba diving and snorkeling,jet skiing and glass bottom boat ride. This beach is richest in marine life...coral reefs,coral fish and even large fish like sharks and dolphins.

This place is overhyped and completely controlled by the Boat Association at Havelock. We were promised a day of snorkelling and instead got a 15 minute guided tour of some fishless corals while Jet Skis roared 10 m away. It is a total scam with people choking the tiny beach and no space to relax. This feels more like Juhu... More

i didnt have time to do my research and was duped by the snorkling guys. they charged a lot for allowing 2 people to go together. You will need to keep a check on the time n distance. They will definitely not give what they had promised. the beach is really really beautiful and 3 hours on the beach is... More
