*We can go throw normal Vehicle but If you have off road vehicle it’s will be more comfortable to reach that area.
*There is not enough deep to swim in that sea but we can walk too long
*While you walking in the sea the water level will be below your stomach.
*There is too much Sharp Stone inside water (Be Careful)
*If you have time to spend full day nd ni8 that will be better (There is no hotel near that island you should take the food items.otherwise you can cook there
Perfect sunset view
would highly recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys nature. The view is spectacular at sunset and the climb is steep enough to tap on your adrenaline rush.
For those who don’t want to try the climb, there’s a spot near the sea shore which would make the drive worthy of the effort.
The drive requires some off road-ing, so I recommend driving in a 4 wheel drive in order to enjoy the drive.

Do not tey to enter the restricted areas.
Sunset from the beach is amazing.There is no lifeguards at the beach, so take care of youself. Since the beach don’t have much depth, you can walk through the sea for a longway. Please keep the place clean, since the garbages spreaded a lot near the beach, which is killing the beauty of the beach
