“Beach”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The beach is dirty and the food along the beach is not hygienic. Its not a beach you would imagine to be. The water is not clean and we did not swim. Just enjoyed the breeze for a while and returned to the hotel

“too crowded and dirty”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

With only one narrow entry point, the crowd seems to just accumulate in a small area. Too crowded. Not clean. Avoidable if you have been to beaches any other place.

“Awful”
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 much of commercialisation”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

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

“Waste and uncleaned water”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

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.
