  • Only a person who had not visited any beach can enjoy the place. The place is filled with dry fish shops and smells bad. Beach is full of stones. Need to walk 300 m to get to the cauvery sangamam...

  • The place has all the vibes to be the best beach with an art gallery, library, variety of shops and peaceful beach experience. But it lacks maintenance, tourists should be mindful of how they litter. Best time to visit is 5pm to 7pm. Very relaxing and not so much crowd.
  • A place with so much historical importance now littered with garbage and most of it shut down with no actual maintenance. There was some museum we saw that was closed down ( months back during covid time). Badly in need of attention from the government and local folks to keep it clean and maintain it as a tourist spot. 2 stars only cos for the beautiful beach view.
