    Besant Nagar

    Besant Nagar is a luxury street that may also be a shopping wonderland for the frugal.

    Why to visit this place

    Besant Nagar's proximity to the sea and a bustling and young beach-side may be its most well-known features, but its generally upscale streets may also be a paradise for the frugal shopper. Try on some dainty, fashionable-looking, and somewhat comfortable footwear, or peruse metres of inexpensive cotton handloom and mill material, including some bold, dramatic ikats and striped mangalagiri fabric. College students love the area because of the numerous gypsy beads kiosks that line the streets – crazily colourful, differently-shaped beads strung together in boho neckpieces, eccentric earrings, and customisable bracelets make for wonderful accessories.

    Special Tip:

    Try some of the delectable seafood that is freshly prepared on the spot due to its proximity to the shore. There is a huge selection of such morsels available, and at very low prices. Take a look at the menu, which includes a wide variety of 'dosas.'
