Sadras Beach

An ineffable beach and resort where beautiful landscapes. The sandy terrains of Mahabalipuram are supported by luscious green casuarinas groves. There is a juxtaposed rhythm in the contrasting beach setup with the righteous mixture of the dull white sand and greener pathways. An impressive place to roam with your loved ones. Only 13 km away from Mahabalipuram, the beach resort has an old and dilapidated Dutch Cemetery and Dutch Fort with perfectly carved stones. A great place to learn the connection of the Netherlanders with Indian Subcontinent. The Dutch Fort here is under the control of the Archaeological Society of India (ASI).
