1. Long walk by the side of the beach. Very well maintained. Idea time - 6:00 PM onwards

2. Tends to be crowded during weekends.

3. Vehicle movement is banned in the evenings which adds to the beauty of the walk. But parking around the area also gets extra difficult.

4. No Sand in the beach - cant play in the water. Hence the name - Rock Beach.

5. Food and beverages abundantly available.

I made the mistake of going there in the morning around 10 am and it was hot and sweaty. but if you visit early in the morning or evening it is a great place to hang out. Evening times it is jam packed with vendors and people. the beach is clean and a cool place to hang out

Rock beach also known as promenade is a must visit just to get the feel of sea breeze. It has many eateries towards the end but sea facing is just one Le Cafe which is pathetic in food and service. So simply grab some clean rock and enjoy sea breeze.

A perfect place to hangout with your friends, family, girl friend . It is a good place place for people of all age ranges. An awesome view of the sea can be experienced from this rock beach. Located very near to the Aurovindo Ashram. A perfect time to visit the rock beach is in the evening.

Go for a walk in the evening and sit for some time on the rock. The vehicle free path(evening 4 pm to morning 7 ) will allow us to enjoy the beauty of the beach and walk. It will be dangerous to go near the shore through rocks
