Silver Beach, Tamil Nadu

One of the best getaways of southeast India, Silver Beach is a place worth stopping by in admiration. It is located in the southern state of Tamil Nadu at Cuddalore, the headquarters of Cuddalore district. The Silver Beach, although located nearby the city, isn’t touched by the hectic and busy life of the nearby city and has remained a place where time stands still. A major reason why people love this beach is for its tranquility and serenity.

It is one of the longest beaches in Asia and the second longest one on the Coromandel Coast. However, there are major seafront erosion happening here at this beach and the 57-km stretching part of this beach often faces the threat of seafront erosion. It also has plenty of land mass and often has island-like structures aplenty. These island-like structures are a pretty good place to attend the water sports and thus the south part of the beach where the backwater separates the main beach is often primed for water sports. There are boathouses too which can be availed, but as of now, the boathouse has been closed.

The trip doesn’t only end at the Silver beach, as it has many other viewpoints and places like forts and dense mangrove forests. The Fort St. David, one of the most important forts built during the time of British India, is located here on this beach. Also, there’s a dense mangrove forest that is home to plenty of birds and a century-old still breathing lighthouse that adds beauty to the beach. There are also a few resorts opening up so as to entertain the tourists.

The silver beach has quite a high number of visitors who love the place for its sea-breeze nature and the recreation that it provides. It’s a perfect getaway in terms of outing. The serene beach, dense mangrove, lighthouse and more are just a few from the list.
