When to visit
The months from November to February are the best time to visit the beach and during the peak season you the beach shacks are opened for the tourist. At this time, the weather is just perfect for making a trip. The summer months are extremely hot and it gets harder to stay under the sun for a long time. During the monsoon the waves are too rude and hit the shore harshly. So it can be dangerous to go there in monsoon. And therefore during these months the nearby shops and shacks remain closed due to fewer crowds.
