Resident guests of Neemrana’s Coconut Alley are welcome to use the private garden pool at The Bungalow on the Beach which is located in close proximity. Neemrana's Coconut Alley does not have its own swimming pool.
One of the major attractions of Tranquebar is its rich ozone layer – most evident on the beach. The ozone has a rejuvenating effect and does wonders to the tired urban body. Neemrana’s Coconut Alley has direct access to the beach which is ideal for morning and evening strolls.
Guests can consider a short-excursion to the Uppanar River is a perfect venue for bird watchers. A small uninhabited island gives the option for a lunch stop.
Boat trips may be organised along the coast, with possible visits to fishing villages. The fishermen are very friendly and you can visit their homes.
Every weekend hundreds of local families from the neighbouring villages gather around the 400 year old Fort which is the second largest Danish fort after Kronborg located in Denmark. Ice-cream vendors, balloon sellers and snack stalls create a car I am-like atmosphere which gives an insight into the humble expression of how people like to celebrate life by the ocean in Tranquebar.
Dansborg Archaeological Museum
The Dansborg Archaeological Museum situated inside the fort holds a collection of curios and artefacts dating back to the Danes. It also has fossils of early centuries, coins, fish bones, Chinese porcelain and weapons. Rare paintings of Maratha kings and palm leaf manuscripts are also stored here.
The Governor's Bungalow
Built in 1784, the Governor’s Bungalow now being restored. This building along with the surrounding buildings, is a centralised public area for Tranquebar and its residents. A library, an exhibition area, a shop, a Tamil restaurant and a tourist office will be a part of this project.
Masilamani Nathar Temple
The 700 year old Masilamani Nathar Temple built in 1306 by the Pandya King Maravarmam Kulasekara Pandyan is unique in its architecture. It was built by combining Chinese architecture with Tamil architectural techniques, possibly in an attempt to attract Chinese merchants who were visiting India. It is a 10 minute walk from Neemrana’s Coconut Alley.
