  • Superb place very neat and clean, plan to visit early latest by 10/10.30 am less crowded at that time, we visited on Sunday got the boat to beach in minutes. Post boon it was heavy crowded, you might have to wait. it's the entry point for paradise beach, well maintained, beach entry through speed boat cost 200 per person two way....Only boat ride if you not willing gor beach 150 per head(subject to availability) an additional 10 rupee per person as entry fee....Nice short and sweet ride
  • It's a nice place where you can reach Paradise Beach by taking a normal boot OS motor boat ride from the backwaters!! Be careful about the timing... Paradise beach is only open till 6 pm and the last boat that takes you to Paradise Beach is 4 PM... you can still take a Boat Ride till 6 pm but they don't stop at beach... though there is a route via Road to Paradise Beach this experience through a boat is lovely!!
  • Instead of going to straight paradise beach, go via this boat house. Do take the motor boat, enjoy the ride and reach the beach enjoy for 2 hours and come back with the same boat with a very minimal charges. It's a good way of feeling the sea
  • Entry point to Paradise beach. This place is located on the Cuddalore Road. They have ample parking space available. Entry fees to the boat house is 10/- per person. Here you can purchase tickets for either drop @ paradise beach or just a boat ride around the beach. Unfortunately when I visited the place, the entry to Paradise beach was restricted due to bad weather and had to just see the beach from boat and come back. Otherwise the place is very well maintained.
  • Excellent place to visit with family and friends, please avoid going here during the peak summer months as it can be very very hot. Boat ride (provided weather is conducive) is a refreshing experience. The place is well managed and maintained.
