The lonely beach, located in far from the madding crowd, is the perfect hideout for the honeymooners. It presents you the joy of swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, sun-basking, bare-foot walking through the beach-corridor, elephant riding and spectacular sunset beside a lagoon nearby, named ‘blue lagoon’.
Vijaynagar beach: bordered with the swaying coconut, palm and mahua trees, this white sandy beach offers you the delightful long walk through the beach, the joy of swimming and sunbathing.
Elephant beach: the beach was badly affected with the Tsunami in Dec, 2004. Only a portion of the beach is standing on bearing the wounds, still offering you possibly the best coral in the island. So snorkeling is a great experience here.
