Visit the beach during work days, weekends will be very crowded, there is only 1 shack which sells fast food, do carry your own food if possible.

It has everything a family needs. A little bit of boating, lot of sun soaking, clean and safe beach, clean and safe sea... Its privately managed and probably thats the reason. We were the first to arrive at the beach and spent about 3 hours there enjoying the water. The sea is very shallow there for a very long stretch and hence my little son could play freely in the water. Had a lovely time and for sure will visit again

Nice beach - fun to swim when allowed by the guards, lot of scope of development. (don't expect Goa) but then that's its charm. to and fro from Chunambar boat service. Don't drive till there , use the boat ride.

You have to commute through the backwater to reach the Paradise Beach Boat House. We took the 8 min way ticket for commuting. Once there, you can indulge in water activities like kayaking, jet skiing, banana boat etc. Personally recommend jet skiing (long version). Else, you can just enjoy the beach waves. Pack extra clothes. There are enough places to change. You need to wear shorts for all water activities as a mandate. Must go!!

Paradise Beach is a nice outing for a Group of friends .. but if u r a couple & want to spend some quite time .. this might not be the ideal place for u.

There is nothing on the island / beach expept from the shabby so called restaurant ...

The restaurant & water sports faclities are provided on the gateway of the beach called 'Chunambar'
