Unspoiled, quiet, and clean this beach hosts a hidden gem of a surreal and pure blue lagoon, created by the flowing of the river into the Arabian Sea, separated by a narrow strip of glimmering sand Fringed by swaying coconut palm trees, one can’t help but get lost in the mesmerizing blue waves of the Arabian Sea as they meet the shores of golden sands. The beach does not receive many visitors as it is off the beaten path, hidden by thickly overgrown hills, with a decent stretch of a rather rocky terrain to be crossed before arriving at this natural paradise.
