Carry some food and enjoy the less crowded side

Good beach go for virgin side as where travelers are more the beach is bad and dirty. No food available you need to go some far to get some food. Its better you take food with you before you visit the place.

The renovated shore

It is a historical place from where Gandhi walked down to start salt Satyagraha. Now the road is asphalted in good condition. Seashore is beautiful. It is attractive and people of the place are very helpful.
