Mesmerizing views of sunset at this beach makes it a perfect destination to spend some peaceful time and also the beach is not so crowded which has kept it clean till date. The turquoise coloured water can actually be seen during the drive to the beach which makes it look even more mesmerizing. The black rocks the lie along the seashores make a bright contrast with silver sand. Green dense forests surround the beach from all the sides.

The whole beach is lined up with rich greenery and one of the best features about the beach is that it is comparatively silent and has less crowd which becomes a reason for why it sticks close to the visitor’s heart. As the number of people is lesser, Kalapathar Beach is very special for couples and families who would like to spend time in peace and utmost calmness.
