Very different beach, waves are huge... swimming not advised, lots of shops on wagons, cleanliness questionable. Could be a lot more cleaner. Police on standby in the area which is a good sign.

Udaya suites is nearer to the Airport. I would also recommend Hotel Highland or any other good hotels in Thampanoor area. Local food easily available. Use taxi or Auto to commute.
