Although there is no specific or perfect time to visit the beach because it is open 24 hours every day, it is advisable to avoid the monsoon season because of the risk of heavy tides. If you are visiting during summers, then go in the evenings for fresh and cool air as it gets too hot and humid during the summers in the afternoon.
