The Poompuhar Beach is an ideal picnic spot. The beach is filled with black sand and has lots of shade making this the best spot to go to for a family picnic. The beach is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the town.
The water is not suitable for swimming though, owing to the fact that the sea is rough near the beach. But the beach provides ample opportunity to engage in various recreational activities at one’s own leisure.
