It is also accessible via Taxis and Autos from different parts of the town. To the south of the beach the South Cuddalore Bay area appears as if it is a separate island. The backwater separating the main beach from the island-like structure is a safe place for water sports. To the west a river flows into dense mangrove forests teeming with birds. On the coast there is century-old lighthouse.Silver Beach is also the location of Fort St. David, which has a long history as one of the three important forts built by the British Empire.There are summer festivals celebrated in Silver Beach yearly during April or May.

They wanted to build a church of their own faith. In the 1692 with the funds from Louis XIV, king of France, a church was established. In the following year it was demolished by the Dutch. A quick second church was built which too did not last long. A third church was built again which was razed by the British. A grander church was planned and work started. On 20 June 1791, the Church was consecrated by Bishop Champenois. The Bell tower and choir loft were added later. The Sanctuary was remodeled in the year 1970. The Immaculate Conecption Cathedral, the typical Jesuit edifice resembles the robin's-egg-blue-and-cloud-white colored Goa-like Portuguese style.
