Moonlit nights and sunrise or sunsets are pure magic. The scenery is a wash with molten silver and gold and oh if you are lucky on a moonlit night when the sea whispers to the shores the Olive Ridleys come ashore to lay eggs (November to February). They return to the same beach where they once swam away from as hatchlings – like the Salmon run another enduring mystery of nature.
