Popular with families and tourists for its park, beach, basketball court and its reconstruction of The Indian Oak, a British vessel that was shipwrecked here in 1840. The ship is constructed as a children’s adventure play area complete with slides, tubes and rigging. Out in the water you can ride a banana boat or try other marine sports, while back on land Araha Beach promises cafés, bars, and restaurants. There is also a nighttime flea market at the weekends and a large San-A supermarket selling food and clothing.
