The main problem that one faces as a tourist in this other wise lovely place is a dirty sea beach. The sand of the beach as can be seen from the picture is so polluted from the debris originating from a varied number of sources like sewerage , littering by public and of course cremation of dead bodies on the guard wall of the . Though such a large scale of pollution is continuing daily there seems to be no effort on the part of the DSDA to arrest ot tackle the menace. The DSDA should relocate the cremation place to a safer and more secluded place hidden from the public glare. Cremation taking place in full view of the unsuspecting tourists just beside one of the main roads is of course a very potent source of visual pollution more so in the absence of any warning mechanism to alert the tourists who might not want to see such a scene, of such activities. This practice of of cremation in public should stop and DSDA should look into the matter and make arrangements for alternative places.
Another area where the DSDA seems to be turning a blind eye is safety during bathing time. In all popular beaches there are life savers on patrol along the beach to help swimmers in case of drowning, which this authority also introduced, but soon cited financial constraints as a reason todiscontinue this popular and life saving excercise.
