Many coconut-palms are grown along the beach, that's why it was formerly called Bay of Coconut-palm. The coconut-palms have been decreasing and there are more malabar almond trees at the moment. There is a park with a lot of flowers below the shadows of trees so that tourists can take a deep breath and hear the sound of waves at the same time.
