OmBodhi Retreat is a beach front retreat away from hustle bustle of big towns and cities. You walk through the retreat and step right on the sandy beach without crossing any street or property of others. It is far from any disturbance and is 7 km long, broken only by hilly outcrop on both sides. It is long enough to enjoy the walk on its sandy beach and small enough to be isolated from being exploited like many other famous beaches. The hallmark of our beach is space and silence, which is broken only by crashing waves. It is a pure joy to observe the effort of smaller milky waves joining into a huge wave rushing towards the beach to hug the mother earth just like small children rushing from different directions towards their mother to hug her.
At the edge of the retreat before the beach is rows of Casuarina trees. This is a common tropical seashore tree known as Whistling-pine or Coastal pine, and is often planted to break high velocity wind, especially sea breeze coming from the sea during the monsoon season. You step out on the beach right from our own property without taking any detour or crossing any road or other property. The beach is clean, uncrowded, peaceful, and Enjoy our clean, uncrowded, peaceful and secluded beach and walk barefoot on its soft golden sand. The shy little white crabs are fun to watch as you approach them. There are no fishermen community in the vicinity of our beach, but they are an important part of any coastal landscape. It is a treat to spot these friendly fishermen folks fishing in their traditional ways using the small fishing boats and nets.
