Swimming Pool

Swimming pool

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.

The Beach

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. For ornithophiles, this is one of the best places to visit in Tranquebar, giving them the best of experiences in Tharangambadi.

Boat Rides

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. These trips can give you a wholesome experience among other things to do in Tranquebar with a peep into the regional culture.

Dansborg Fort

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.

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.
