The beach is a good place to try adventure sports like paragliding, parasailing and microlight flights.

“If you are interested in driving along the sandy beach this is the right place.

The walk along the rock formations, swimming, water sports etc makes the beach more prominent among other beaches.” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Joji Joseph.
