The entire beach is covered with trees’ shade and the beach is an ideal spot for having a small picnic for locals and tourists alike.

The name itself suggests that location of the beach. The North Pole is located on the northern tip of the island country and is one of the most soothing and charming beaches. Though the beach stays hidden and deserted most of the times, the beauty will charm you. The reason for being a deserted spot is a condemned hotel project that still takes place in the back from the edge of the beach. But the beach was not always deserted like the present time and once it used to be one of the most popular ones in the country and that was because of the military base that was located nearby. It can be said that hidden gem better stays hidden so that often a few people can enjoy the peaceful sight of beaches.

The beach is located on the Southern Coast and it is near to the Hilton Hotel. The beach often stays empty and the entire sight of the beach is dominated by the large rocks. The presence of large rocks creates many small pools where you can relax. It is also an ideal spot for the surfer to take surfing.
