“Awful”
Review of Velankanni Beach

Velankanni Beach
Reviewed August 18, 2012

This place is as disgusting as the streets. There were people immersing themselves in the sea and I was thinking about the filth running down the streets which I assume enters the sea eventually.
It was probably all in my mind but when I had a bad tum I was just waiting to move away from this dirty place.

Too many shops right upto the beach and the beach has been rendered dirty due to this. Not a good option to swim or even wet your legs in

Please....... don't take bath.
It is not maintained well. Local governing body must take necessary steps to clean the Beach since thousands of devotees are daily visiting this Beach.

The beach is to be the destination for all the devotees who come here and majority of them are from the lower middle class and middle class families... Food packets and plastic packets are strewn all over the place... But if you still want to have a stroll go there after 9.00pm as it is less populated though full of people till past midnight
