One can take a walk along the beach for a few kms and meet not a single person; that is really a thing of wonder for those who are living in the city since birth....The Howrah bridge, a natural coral bridge is a must watch so is the Sunset point, where everyone gathers in the evening to watch the wonderful sunset.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aniruddha Basu shares, “We went there mainly to watch the sunset and listen to the chirping of the birds returning to their nests. I must say that had we not gone there we would have missed one of the best sunsets we have ever visualised in our life. The sea there was very calm and serene...was the most memorable sunset. Ah! I will never forget this experience! It is really useless to try to describe such scenarios as words are just not enough to describe them. One must see them with his/her own eyes to realize such beauties of nature.”
