The Trail & Beach
An interesting 3 km long trail take one from the cape near the headquarters takes one to a small sandy beach assisted by a freshwater lagoon. The trail is an easy walk amidst natural surroundings interspersed by few short steep ascents and descents.
Located at a short distance from the headquarters, this is a beautiful beach having unusual coral formations and an aquatic life brimming with variety.
Located at the distance of 800 meters from the headquarters, the deserted beach, as it's name suggests, is flanked by rocky outcrops.
Lying at the distance of 1.5 km from the Park headquarters, this white sandy beach is nice for activities like diving, swimming and coral-watching. Walking in the jungle to the beach is also an exhilarating experience.
Topography & Vegetation
The hills are made mostly of granite rocks which are rich in Mica and are said to be laid down between 60 to 140 million years ago. Most of the park land is covered by tropical evergreen forest. However, due to human encroachment, fruit farms or rubber plantations are found in some areas. The Park also has a little patch of coastal habitat.
» The area of the Park is 125 sq km.
» The Park was designated in 1991 as a terrestrial park.
» It's management was transferred to the Marine National Park Division in 1995.
