Bangalore: Imagine an evening with your loved one on an exotic beach, having some delicious seafood. Or if you have an adventurous soul, how about trying a wide variety of water sports like scuba diving, water skiing and wind surfing? Well, India's 6000 km long coastline does have some of the exquisite beaches that are just perfect for people who are in love with the deep blue sea. No more words. Here is our take on the top 10 beaches in India.

1. Candolim Beach, Goa

Popular among the tourists, yet not too crowded, Candolim beach is one of the stunning beaches in Goa. It's a lively beach that has managed to retain its cleanliness, and even peacefulness in some areas. Candolim Beach is right next to Aguada Fort, which is also worth a visit. The beach itself is long and straight, backed by scrub-covered dunes, which is very popular with package tourists. Located in North Goa, Candolim Beach is 10 kilometers from Mapusa and 13 kilometers from Panaji. The closest railway station is Thivim.

2. Karaikal Beach, Pondicherry

The calm and soothing water, clear and bright sand, impressive seclusion and resorts and cottages providing a brilliant sight of the sea, this is what Pondicherry beaches are all about. And the Karaikal beach is just the ideal package of all these. It has a breathtaking view of the confluence Arasalar River and the sea. If you are interested in watching the rising sun, then you must visit this beach as it is an excellent place for this purpose. You can also enjoy the boating club on the beautiful backwaters of the Arasalar. The nearest airport to the beach is Trichy (Trichirapalli), the nearest Railway Station is at Nagore and regular buses ply from Pondicherry.

10: Looks like every one are concerned about the beaches of there locality, rather than going out there and experience the numerous beaches our motherland offers. come on guys get matured, experience & love nature more rather than comparing it.

11: Vizag beaches are one of THE BEST beaches in India

12: The best and most exotic beach in GOA is at Arambol. The Vagator beach is crap, it is all rocks and no sand! Orissa has some beautiful beaches, but Gopalpur on sea is not one of them, it goes into the water too steeply and so is unfriendly and dangerous to people who want to get into the water. The best beach I have seen in Orissa is Chandrabhaga, on the way to Konark from Bhubaneswar. Miles upon miles of flat sand which goes into the sea so gently that you can walk for hundres of metres in ankle deep water. I have not been to Mandarmani in WB, but I heard it has become too crowded and polluted now, probaly same as Marina beach in Chennai, Puri beach, Juhu beach in Mumbai or Calangute in Goa, the reason for them not being mentioned in this article.

17: There is another secret beach in West Bengal, known as Mandarmani,this beach has been explored few years back in 2004 by Mr.Sandipan Biswas a renown business man of Kolkata, He loved the place and made up his mind to build a resort in this beach known as The Sana Beach Resort today more then 50 Resorts has been constructed and many resorts and hotels are upcoming since last 6 years because people of Bengal Bihar and Jharkhand are flouting to be hear because of its scenic beauty and location though it is 180 kms from Kolkata city and Airport and the nearest railway station Contai and Digha are 20kms away but it is very popular with Corporates and IT Industry employee of Bengal.

There are so many beaches and u can't compare them among each other. Whatever mentioned in this article are fine beaches. Since its top 10, you can't expect each and every one them.

write was talking about exotic beaches not popular ones...
Rohit Replied to: harry - 05 Mar, 2011
marina & exotic? WRUT. english meaning of exotic is far far away from The good old Marina.
ocean madras Replied to: Girisan - 04 Mar, 2011
You must be a crazy dumb ass to say Marina is not exotic. Better make your trip and clean your sensus. It is one of the longest and largest beaches of the world and in the last 5 years has been the best maintained beach interms of the moving population. If Marina is not exotic , it means you have not seen Marina beach. Dumb ass
