The name 'Someshwara beach' is derived from the name of Lord Somanatha, whose temple is located on the sea shore dating back centuries.[2]

The hidden rocks and currents along this stretch of coast make this beach unsuitable for swimming.[3]

Close to this beach there is a hill called 'Ottinene Hill'. There is vegetation and a number of medicinal plants that grow naturally on this hill.[2]
