There are a couple of small boutique properties: 'Marari Villas' and a 'A Beach Symphony', as well as a number of homestays. Muthoot Leisure & Hospitality Services, part of the Muthoot Group, has begun construction of a 20 keys resort which would open early 2014. The beach is clean and safe for swimming.
