Just have a visit for less than 10 minutes and pay your respect to Father of Our Nation. Not so attractive, but just have a look.. This is where the ashes of Gandhiji was kept before immersing in the Ocean. You can view the entire ocean and place from the top.

We have to deposit our footwear [for a nominal fee] at the counter as we enter the premises. More than the place where Gandhi's ashes were kept before immersion in sea, what attracted me was the upper terrace which gave good view of the surroundings. It is good place to enjoy the breeze also.

No information about Gandhi at all just a few photos. Women you have to leave you shoes with is pretty grumpy and there's a man fishing for tips that claims he looks after the place. Also a pretty dirty place.
