Five lovely beaches in India to visit before summer !

We all love beaches.

With winter in India still on, why don't we explore some lovely beaches which are still off the regular travel circuit. Skip Goa, Kovalam, Pondy or Alibaug. Head towards these which are quiet and quaint before summer kicks in. Come back with lovely memories.

Of course, this is not for those who are looking for action, night life etc.........

Kushi

We bet you may not have heard of it! The Coromandel coast is still unexplored. It has some amazing beaches. This is what can be called as most beautiful beach in south india. The water is still and clear blue. Sand is golden. The casuarina grove all along the shore add to the beauty.



Getting there - Kushi beach is very close to Rameshwaram which is well connected by train and bus. The nearest airport is Madurai.

Stay Option - Nil. You need to stay in Rameshwaram which has good hotels.

Thanks Rachit. Unfortunately, Pondy as such does not have a great beach. You need to go towards either Cuddalore or Mahabalipuram to get some nice beaches. Yes, the complete Tamil Nadu coast is unexplored. There are amazing beaches like Tranquebar, Cuddalore, Vedaranyam, Tiruchendur, Dhanushkodi etc.....
