Accessible only by ferry across the backwaters, the journey takes approximately 20-30 minutes and offers stunning views of lush mangrove forests and abundant birdlife. Along the main entrance to the beach, visitors can find a few shacks offering fresh coconut water and simple snacks, adding to the rustic charm of the area.
