Ohh..That video do not do justice. This beach is awesome, it is just 15 min away from my home.

If you really want to enjoy, hit the beach by 6.30 AM and have fun and photo shoot.

Accomodation update:

First week of Jan 2014, board and lodging charges averaged across confirmed members would be collected to settle the accomodation account.

Kanaka Beach House has blocked 7 rooms for us till 14 Jan '14 without any earnest money deposit.

Asokam Beach Resort asked me to put my money where my mouth is to confirm the booking (no blocking).
Consequently, as a measure of abundant precaution, have booked online and secured 6 rooms.

FYI, relevant correspondence, copy-pasted:

Hi

Sending our tariff :
We have 7 air conditioned rooms. Out of that 2 rooms are Deluxe A/C and 5 rooms are standard A/C.
Deluxe A/C rooms : 3500+12.5%tax
Standard A/C: 2750 + 12.5%tax
This includes breakfast.
Extra person is charged Rs.500/
For all the 7 rooms rent will be Rs.20750 + 2593.75 ( 12.5% tax) = Rs.23343.75/ per night.
50% of the amount should be paid in advance to confirm your booking.
(We will block the rooms for you till 2nd week of January 2014)
Thanks and regards

It will be a first time for me to get into a t-BHP tour. The first post says 15/16 Feb and the later post confirms accommodation for Jan. I am guessing Jan is the correct date. Can you please confirm? Cheers.

Diesel_convert is right. The trip is on Feb 15 and 16th as per itinerary.

The later post:
"First week of Jan 2014, board and lodging charges averaged across confirmed members would be collected to settle the accomodation account."
pertains to payment of resort accommodation charges.

Trust this clarifies.

Night journey not contemplated, so as to enjoy the vistas en route and to have suitable comfort stops.
The drive is open to families and kids of all ages are welcome .
