  • Its actually located few distance away from the city. Its such a nice place for fabulous evenings. Usually a crowd is seen during festival or holiday seasons. The Beautiful Sunset is the main attraction of people over here. Along with beach there is also a small Park with a cheap fee. Its an extra ordinary feel to sit over there an watch the beautiful sunset.
  • Good but not best beach for spending time. Not so clean due to crowd. You will not get chance to see any sea creatures. If you need to enjoy in beach to the fullest them go to Muzhappilangad beach. It's a drive-in beach and clean beach. You will get to see shells, start fish and crabs in the beach. The sunset and sunrise views are good. You will find people selling done eatables near the beach. There is also a park close to the beach.
  • Nice beach to take the family ad enjoy the sun, sand and breeze!!!!! There is a small theme park for the kids to enjoy. Lots of people flying kites too. A good cafe nearby with small great eats! Tip: if you don't have your own transportation, it might be a challenge to find an auto back to the town. The narrow roads can also get congested due to the traffic.
  • Payyambalam beach is actually very long beach. There is a park near the beach and you can spend time there. Please not that there is crematorium near the start of the beach and be aware of it. I saw tourist going inside out of curiosity due to lot of people movement. You get decent snacks option in evening and it is really tasty. We never forget to capture the beauty of sunset. Parking is a issue at the festive season.You may have to park on road ( which is already narrow).
  • Very good beach with rock side view. It is not crowded. There's a small park for children as well. Parking is a concern; Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars.
