Ferry point to Paradise Beach

Nothing much here, except that its the ferry point to Paradise beach. It does have a restaurant that serves lunch. Didn't try it as it did not look too appealing.

If u don't reach early, u might have to stand in a long queue first for the tickets, then for boarding. I wasted atleast an hour and a half for this. I would suggest u take the speed boat instead. It saves time.

The queue for tickets runs into an hour wait and it closes at 3.30 PM. imagine going into the open sea and sea sand in burning hot Sun...not a vacation to be honest. Also, the boat is ill maintained and hardly any safety... More

May be very crowded; prepare yourself for a wait on holidays. Many options available; slow ferrys and fast launches; Could be better maintained ...
