The waves have been rough for the last couple of weeks. Most of the shops on Eve's Beach and Lighthouse beach have closed shutters. And according to reports, there was large scale erosion reported from both the beaches.
The boating, scuba diving and other activities around the beach have been put on hold due to the heavy rains and high waves lashing the shores. Other than a couple of guests who come here to watch the monsoons, these shores will remain comparatively deserted till the season begins by mid-August.
