“Could have been better”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We went when they had literally cordoned off the entire beach for some cheap carnival. We bought the entry tickets only to realize that there is no view of the beach with all those partitions erected all around! Even the boats had been asked to stop ferrying passengers to the island that day. Communication for non-Keralites was a challenge so we took help of a local tourist who helped us reach the accessible beach area, which was nice but dirty on the day, not sure how it usually is.

We were really looking forward to wading across to the Dharmadam island but couldn't because we weren't sure if the boats will be there should the tide move in. Later when we went to Muzhappilangad Drive-in beach which is around 2km from here did we really see the island in its splendor - it was looking really beautiful from afar. Aah well.. some other time!

Simply Brilliant sceneries. So relaxing and calming, and the Island that you can walk to in low tide is amazing.

Dharmadam island and beach are excellent. Can walk through sea to the island and come back during low tide time. The beach is also clean and have less crowd. Really really enjoyed the place.

“Walk to an island”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Lovely beach. You can walk to an island during low tide.The beach is clean and private.(As private as it gets in Kerala, which unlike Goa can be not-so- private). Swimming is safe, again only if you area good swimmer and used to the sea.
