This place is very quite and not so crowded. So you can enjoy some alone time. The blue sky and the sea makes a beautiful view.

Best time to move around the beach is morning hours when we can see fisherman selling their catchment fish and watch lot of activities.Calm and quite environment suits for the morning walkers.

Beach is good for sighting but not for bath. Can seat and enjoy the whole day. A bit fishy smell can make you uneasy but if you do not have any problem with fish, you should go here.
