Best Beaches In India For Sun, Sand And Leisure!

Beaches are the most peaceful and yet the most happening places to visit and I recall Lorde: “I’m surrounded by the beach, so I love to fish and to dive and to swim. I walk a lot, and I bike around. I hang out at the beach, really, and muck around.” Beaches are places where sea, sand and the sun come together; the sweltering sun rays falling on sparkling sand witness the tide teasing the shore and much more! From pulsating adventure to serene solitude and exotic parties, Indian beaches indubitably have it all. So, this crazy beach lover brings a list of best beaches in India for all those beach lovers out there.
