Bekal beach is a perfect destination for a day-long picnic. Tourists can enter the Bekal Fort and explore the interiors of the fort. The view of the beach from the top of the fort is a breathtaking view. Other than the fort, tourists can also explore the rock garden which is situated only a kilometre away from the beach.
Bekal beach is not a virgin beach but it not always crowded like several other commercial beaches in India. The garden is the best place to spend time with friends and family. One may enjoy camel rides, horse rides, local snacks etc. on the beach. There is also a children's play area where they can spend time.
