It is the most happening beach in the city. Visit during the mornings to see the sunrise, the pigeons circling over the sand and to get inspired by so many locals walking, running, playing and cycling to kick start their day.

Visit during the evenings if you want to try out various pocket friendly dishes from bajji to vada pav and cotton candy to waffles.

Visit on a Sunday morning to enjoy the vehicle free zone, when you can enjoy the sea breeze with no pollution.
