Been to this beach it was like lonely planet beach . So clean, beautiful and safe. If you want some good time with spouse . The one. Close by are ancient temples and lots of coconut trees. Tasty homemade non veg food. If you are fish lover you will love it. Want to spend quite time alone this place is best. Locals are so helpful
