  • Best ever beach to enjoy Ur full day!!🚣🏖 You can spend your full day right from 10.00 AM to 6.00 PM. First u need to park your vehicle.. there is ample space for parking near the entrance. Next you need to buy tickets for boating to enter into paradise island. It's a half an hour travel and then you will reach the paradise island 🏃🏃🏄🏄🚣🏊 The beach is very very clean and it is maintained well.🏝🏖 It has many washrooms and plenty of rooms to get your dresses changed. Each washroom has a shower in it. It's all that you can spend your time with much enjoyment that you have never thought of!!! Very good place to hang out with your loved one's 👫👨‍👨‍👦‍👦💑
  • Location is good. You need to take ticket for boat travel to beach(Cost is high). They take you on boat to the beach via back water river for about 1.5hrs travel time. You can spend about 4hrs in beach & facility to take bath with fresh water is also available in beach area. Again boat facility is available for returning. Total spending time shall be 6hrs. Worth spending some time here.
  • Nice place. The ride to Paradise beach was fun and exciting. People around are nice and guide well. We had a memorable time here. Prices for the ride are pretty reasonable.
  • Nice boat house. You get boats here to go to paradise beach. Or just for a boat ride too you can go there. Also they have shikara themed restaurant which is nice. They have motor boats, speed boats and all. It's nice.
  • It was awesome! Back-water boating... will be boarded at Paradise beach! You can spend good time here! .. Wonderful place as paradise!.. Foods and cool drinks are available.. Nice to be here!
