Bharatpur beach is right next to jetty and is not as big as Laxmanpur beach. The former is known for its corals so I suggest snorkeling at Bharatpur beach is a must.Laxmanpur beach on the other hand is a very long beach and even on peak tourist days, the beach gives you ample of time and space to be on your own and enjoy the privacy even among crowd. Since the beach provides a stunning sunet view, I suggest you go there in the evening.

The beach is also very safe for swimming though incidents of salt water crocodile attacks on humans have been reported couple of times. But in such cases, the forest department issues a warning to the visitors. After sunset, it is not advisable to go inside the water as the intensity of waves increases and it gets a little dangerous to stay in water post sunset.
