"Good choice for a day"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Mar 26, 2015
It is one of few spots where local people go for outing frequently. Distance from city is around 90 kms with rocky beach and dark water. Its fun if you are with group of people to enjoy. Few stay options and limited food choices around. One lighthouse, 2-3 temples around thats it.
