Small town beach

We reached the beach after sunset. The water was far away. It wasn’t well lit and there were just a few guys sitting in the walls near the beach. It is totally avoidable.

Long walk to an average beach, not allowed after 6 PM
May 2019 • Friends
The parking area and beach are quite distant when compared to many other beaches across Tamilnadu. The beach was quite slushy as well. Policemen were sending back people by 6 PM and not allowed after - a sorry state definitely. There is a park like place with shops on one side of the beach, which we did not go. Not a great beach and can give it a miss.

Enjoy The Walk and the Nature !

A walk or drive from the Arasalaar Bridge to the Karaikkal beach is an enjoyable activity at karaikkal. The road is well laid and has seats made of trunks of trees on the pavement on one side and the river with fishing boats on the other side.

Apart from enjoying the beach front, one can enjoy the mangrove trees on the back waters. Lighting arrangements are nicely made for evening walk.

A pleasant beach with a beautiful approach road.
Feb 2019 • Family
The beach is calm and beautiful. You can see a river merging into the sea here. The river flows almost 5 kms into the town and you can see fishing boats parked in the river.

You need to walk close to a kilometer from the car parking slot to the beach. These measures seems to be taken by the Administration post the Tsunami damages of 25th Dec 2004.

There is a beautiful long road running parallel to the beach on which you can go for a ride and enjoy the sea breeze and see the sea at a distance.

Its a beautiful place to relax and enjoy with family and friends.

Average beach

Small town with basic infrastructure. Apart from the Saniswaran temple the beach is something worth a visit. We happened to visit in the night and were skeptical about the crowd but it turned out to be a pleasant evening. There was plenty of lighting and quiet a few families, it seemed safe and lively. We couldn't see much of the beach or sea as it was dark but we could make it would have been scenic, we could see an inlet and some mangroves.

There is a basic eatery and park and a highly littered lawn. Had the place been rubbish free it would certainly have been a splendid tourist spot. There is abundant parking and lines of the usual beach shops.
