Day 3

It is also known as full moon beach.The options to reach it is by boat or by trekking 2kms.Its is 9kms from Om beach but once you reach there you would say wow.Its a small beach mostly covered with rocks along with clear white sand.

This beach used to be a hippie spot a few years ago but government put an end to this hippie spot by breaking all the shacks.You'll find many broken down shacks lying on the beach shore.

Camping at this beach for a night is a very good option since few visit this beach.

Paradise beach gives you the feeling of isolation and the perfect place to spend some time admiring nature.
