This is a scenic place for an evening picnic. It has beautiful promenade and and a viewing tower. The view of the sea is just lovely.
One of my favorite place in Thalassery, It's the best place in town to watch sunset. If you find yourself in town and has got some time to spare its worth a visit.
Beautiful place for relaxation .
