Serene and clean! Must go even if you go for 5 minutes to just enjoy the sound of the waves crashing against the shore.

It's a long stretch of beautiful sandy beach that has some of the nicest beach houses and hotels right on them. To the far west theres a beautiful train bridge crossing over which adds to the view of the hilltop right behind it.

Been here twice now. Both times off summer season (May and August). Amazingly soothing and beautifully quiet. First round we did all the touristy things...this time we just relaxed and chilled. Great recharge from every day life. Watch for Dolphins playing in the waves!
