The life changing snorkeling , scuba diving and glass boat experience if you are looking out for is all here at this beach. This is a touristy beach due to these adventure activities. At moderate prices trained staff takes us for the activities deep in the sea. Safety is taken care as top priority to avoid casualty. The water is crystal clear but during tide it turns murky as the sandbar pops out and astonishingly you would find the place you traveled by ferry to dive or snorkel you could walk n reach then jump is water during low tide... It's a kind of busy temporary port for Niel islands, goods are transported in off hours when tourists are done and relaxing. Stalls can be found to snack on and also for lunch with sea food. The beach is really a family place. No one can visit just once as your adrenaline rush would keep you calling... Have a great time here.

This place is crowded and much for water sports activities. Swimming and sun bathing i doubt if there any space for it as most of the space is occupied by the water activities business. If you need some relaxation time by the beach then preferable to visit this place as it has mats and seating areas where you can sit and have fun and leisure time with friends and family.

The beach is very shallow, for upto around 300m from the shore it won't even come up to your waist. There are some water activities like snorkelling and jet skiing. Can skip this one considering how good the other beaches on this island are.
