The rooms also come at reasonable rates as there are no major hotels are found here.
While you walk down the beach you can see a smaller one with a fresh water lake located very close to the sea. There is a banyan tree hidden in between the jungle valleys and just near to the banyan tree there is a stone sculpture created by an American Conceptual and Land art artist Jacek Tylicki, called as Money Stone. This has become a pilgrimage spot after that. Hindus and Christians are the major communities seen living here. Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a famous church in the area and the mother Mary is called Saibinn Mai in the Konkani Language.
