Do not waste your time coming to this beach if you are planning to come in Christmas or New Year. I'm not sure how people rated this beach 5 stars. All I can see is dead fishes everywhere. May be it..... more »
A nice beach to hangout with friends and family in the evening. You can spent the entire evening in the beach enjoying the sea and have good food from the small stalls there. The evening vibe here is awesome.
