  • Great place to hang out and relax. Lots of interesting things to do including kite flying, quad biking, camel rides among other things. Enjoy snacks and drinks or have fun at the kids park. A good place to spend a good Sunday evening.
  • Great place to visit during a weekend. Playing area with lots of fun rides are available for kids so this is suitable for families. Extra caution should be taken while entering the water in the beach because normally the tides are violent.
  • Good place to relax in the evening and play in the sea. There is always a crowd here. Beach has an attached park as well which has a minimal entry fee. Good views and photogenic place.
  • Lovely place to see sunset. Beautiful park for kids and elders. They sell kite. So had a lovely experience flying kite. Don't miss this place.
  • Very beautiful beach. Not too crowded like Calicut beach. Park nearby for kids. Camel ride available.
