  • This is a Naval area. In order to access the place you must have authorized pass. It's a Peaceful, clean and very fascinating area on the hill. The natural and shipping views are awesome from the top of the place. Though photography is strictly prohibited of Navy ship site areas but the beauty of town can't be ignored from the place. Must visit.
  • One of the best beaches to visit. The uphill drive and the descent after that is amazing. Driving gives you a better experience and the beach is very serene! The beach can sometimes be dangerous so stay cautious!
