Its a great place to relax and unwind. Clean fresh air, a lovely break from the stuffy city, white sand beaches that aren't crowded, ( I love peace and quiet) you can find nice affordable accommodation, and view the most beautiful sunsets

It was a two day break but the place was really good for those who enjoys the good beautiful gardens. It's a bit away from the beach but worthy visiting.

A sleepy kind of place. Beautiful scenery. Nice for relaxation. Line jumping at the masala ferry should be discouraged.
