Shanghumukham Beach Reviews
Since I was staying at uday suites at 5 mints walkable distance of beach I went there many reddiwalas were there ..normal beach took a round and just put checked in .not took bath . more »
We spent an hour watching the sunset. The mermaid statue is very nice. Clean beach, with the boats on shore. Hawkers do not intimidate. more »
A nice beach to hangout with friends and family in the evening. You can spent the entire evening in the beach enjoying the sea and have good food from the small stalls there. The evening vibe here is awesome.
Its an excellent, peaceful and serene place to be in the evening. Sunset view is awesome. Though it all depends on your luck whether the sun sets on the horizon or much before that in the cloudy sky.
