Independence Beach is not fully open to the public. Part of it is on a rocky hillside showing wonderful views, while another part consists of a white sandy beach. The beach was named after the historic 7-storey Independence Hotel.
Independence is just over a kilometer long, and the beach itself is narrow. Except for a small section maintained by the hotel for its guests, majority of Independence is closed to the public.
If one looks forward to spending some quality time in Independence without the noise of Ochheuteal, there is a small part near the southern end of the beach where there are no other tourists. A glass of wine or a bottle of beer, coupled with the slight murmurings of snack vendors clustered together a few meters away, can easily become someone’s dream vacation.
