I like this beach as a place where stay after my flight to India. We can have bath and shopping. There also many good restaurants nearby. Only for few days can be good.

Beach has two lighthouses on both sides. The water is not deep and the waves are wonderful for swimming. Amazing experience.

This is a very popular beach with lots of restaurants right on the beach front. The main attraction is the candy stripped lighthouse and the small fishing boats.
