Trip to the Ideal Beach Resort North of Mammallapuram

Chennai lies at the sea and it has 12km of golden sand beach, but is not the place to go bathing (dirty water, dangerous waves and crowds of people staring ). So we went once to this seaside resort to cool out. The Ideal Beach Resort has a beautifull private beach with palms and hammocks where you can lay and enjoy the sea breeze and the waves while drinking from a fresh coconut. Around the village life goes on.
