Another fascinating thing about this beach is the abandance of beautiful corals and marine life,specially at the twilight hours,and makes the shallow sea bed look like a underwater garden.

Wild pig, also known as wild boar, (Sus scrofa) is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae.
The body of the wild pig is compact; the head is large, the legs relatively short. The fur consists of stiff bristles and usually finer fur. The colour usually varies from dark grey to black or brown.
The hair of the boar was often used for the production of the toothbrush until the invention of synthetic materials in the 1930s.
Wild boar are a main food source for tigers in the regions where they coexist. Tigers typically follow boar groups, and pick them off one by one. Tigers have been noted to chase boars for longer distances than with other prey, though they will usually avoid tackling mature male boars. In many cases, boars have gored tigers to death in self defense.
