Lying at a distance of about 200 metres is a small private island called Dharmadam which is a serene and isolated destination where you relax in the lap of nature. Since the late 90's, the beach has seen a steady influx of European tourists during winter, and since the recent facelift of the beach, there has been a huge improvement in the facilities available to the beach visitors.
