Looks like an unpolluted beautiful beach. We did not know that during our visit. Thanks for the info and nice pictures.

it is a nice beech to swim during non monsoon(southwest) time;

but be mind full of strong under tow, particularly with big waves.

when we were kids we used to ride our bikes from nagercoil to the beech and had hell of a great time swimming. The undertow used to scare the daylights out of first time swimmers! There used to be so many cashew trees on the way.

Of course now with all the horrendous traffic it is totally unsafe (ie bicycling)
