The tiny town of Tranquebar has few attractions (two churches, one restaurant and an arts & crafts store), but that also means fewer distractions.
The island’s remoteness from Chennai and Trichy—the closest city with an airport—ensures that very few will make it this far. The view is absolutely amazing. From different sides you can see an ancient Danish fort, an old colonial township and a vast ocean.
Bungalow on the Beach is a quiet hideaway, where you won’t be interrupted by any trappings of city life.The Bungalow on the Beach is a fine example: a completely restored, traditional house with a deep verandah on all four sides, and beautifully furnished, high ceilinged rooms. No modern glitz, but the place to stay for any traveler visiting Tranquebar in a fine position overlooking the beach.
The village is relatively unknown, but carries a long history of Dutch patronage & many an interesting places to visit. After being ravaged by Tsunami, the bungalow on the beach was restored as a hotel by a leading developer.
