HolidayIQ Reviewer Payalgangwal shares, “If you love seafood then it could be the best place for you with so many restaurants and hotels which offers fresh and a variety of seafood. Some restaurant also offers a wide range of fresh fruit juice, beach drinks with authentic tasty South Indian dishes for non-vegetarians as well. Every early morning beach becomes quite messy due to a crowd of fishermen to capture the fresh fishes, prawns and so on. They overnight let remain the fish net to grab them.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Akshaya Patil says, “Worth a million experience! The beach was not much crowded as we went there in morning. We saw some fishermen fishing and spotted some hermit crabs on the shore. If you land up on the beach before going to the houseboat then while going back, you will come across some shop which is selling fish. So, if you are seafood lovers you should buy some fresh fish from this shop and give it to the cook on the houseboat they will cook it for you. As you we get fish at a cheaper rate outside than at the stall were the houseboat will take you to buy fish.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Amit Nagrecha shares, “Magical Thailand! This place has a beach especially coral island is a must with activities like parasailing, underwater walking and feeding the fish and of course the jet ski, banana ride. The local food is a must especially the soup noodles, fresh fruits, watermelon, papaya, and seafood. The cheapest place is Indra Market and the roadside shopping is good, for upscale shopping you can go to Central Mall, Palladium Mall, Big C and the other malls are the famous MKB. There is also the weekend market called the Chatuchak Market open only on Saturday and Sunday, good bargains. Must-visit is the ''Sleeping Buddha'' and other various temples. The best place which I liked the most was the Safari World.” Read Full Review

Mouthwatering prawns, mussels and more variety of seafood in local Malvani style. I seriously loved the food they served. There are activities like snorkeling and parasailing. Boat trips are arranged if there is a group of about 8-10 members as per the requirement for dolphin viewing and to the lighthouse. Do visit Devbag just ahead on the same road where the river meets the sea. People should come here to enjoy the best seafood.” Read Full Review
