The turquoise crystal clear waters rush playfully to the pristine white shores untarnished by the outside world. The beach was unknown to humans, but after photos of the beach became viral on the internet the beach became very popular. Despite its fame the beach is not crowded due to the difficulty in getting there. You can get there only by the means of a helicopter. The small tunnel, about 59ft in height with only 6 ft of air gap between water and rock, and can be crossed only by scuba diving or swimming, and that too only during low tide.
