This place is scenic with light house as it's special attraction. The view from top of the light house after climbing hundreds of steps inside the vertical structure is superb. The beach also is spectacular with stony carvings around.

I went with my friends and had an awesome time. The view from the lighthouse is beautiful and the atmosphere is not too crowded so it feels peaceful. Highly recommended!

Not the most serene, scenic and gifted beach around! They have clearly called it out the beach being not suited for swimming. The lighthouse apparently has specific visiting hours, which we're informed were to be evening 5-6:30(Not sure).

This beach is an isolated one and not kept best of clean. The beaches in Mangalore are actually better. The beach here is more rocky and venturing very deep is not advised as the sea shore lands abruptly at many places.

Not sure of any home stays near the beach. However, there are quite a few hotels which are very close to the beach.
