  • A nice place to visit. If one comes early morning it is nice & quiet with a sitting sea breeze and gentle waves lapping the Bay. Highly Recommended to visit. After around 07. 30am, the Fisher folk & buyers start arriving & it gets increasingly crowded. The fishing boats too start returning & it is then a colourful & noisy scene. I loved my time here. Also. Went to the adjacent fish market & bough fish fresh off the boats.
  • Cool😎 place. Can visit with family on evening time and relax. Beach area very nice.
