Dhanushkodi - best place to visit in Rameswaram
My favourite spot in Rameswaram is Dhanushkodi. The village is now in ruins because of a tsunami couple of years ago. The ruins is what adds to the charm of the place. It's a reminder of what the people went through during the tsunami but they overcame it. You can try some delicious fresh fish fry on the side of the road for super cheap. The confluence of the two oceans - Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean is at the tip of Dhanushkodi. The point has recently been opened up to public. It gets a bit crowded but is a must visit. Sri Lanka is 22 kms away from this spot. Make sure you spend a day exploring the intriguing Dhanushkodi!
This beach is unique. You get to see turquoise blue water at Dhanushkodi beach like no other place in India. Majestic Indian ocean on one side and Bay of Bengal on the other side and they meet at this beach. There is a newly constructed road which gives good access till the last point and the drive is superb. We went on the weekend and there were lot of people around. The waves are calm on either side, very safe to go inside water even for kids. Beaches are pretty clean aside from the seaweed lying in some areas. There is cool breeze throughout the day. The place is pretty much untouched, there are no restroom facilities on the beach, hardly any vendors. This is the closest point on Indian side towards Sri Lanka. This place closes by 5pm. Best time is in morning as it gets slightly hot by noon.
This is the last coastal village near Srilankan border. The Ramsetu was built through this way. Before the cyclone here rail service was on since the British time. People go the Dhanushkodi for Pind Daan purpose and some of us only as a sightseeing. You will find amazing minibus goes through sand and water. There is a temple near old railway station of dhanushkodi you will find a rare floating stone there. But the beaches are awesome with clean water. At some places you will experience high tides also and some place the calm and still.
One of the encient and relegious place of india ...
On 12 nov 2016 we went dhanushkodi one of the encient place in india. It's an most relegious one also along with the rama setu related hindu god lord sri rama, the most encient bridge. Also have dhanushkodi beach one of the best beach I have ever seen. Such a beautiful, calm, clean beach with golden sand and white sea shore .. We relaxed and had a quality time on beach ... Approximate all places and buildings along with old railway statiin has been finished over due to heavy cyclone in 1964 ... Every one should visit this place atlest at onece in a entire life.
Serene, peaceful, adventurous & experience epics of Ramayana
Around 30 km from the Rameshwaram Temple. Nice & Clean beach and not commercialised. One of the places which is not much explored near Rameshwaram. Too windy and breezy. Not so crowded.
Spectacular view of sea and the beach
It is not for swimming or for doing something into water. It's the place where you can feel the beauty of blue sea with big waves. It was very nice place in South-India. The nice beach for families and children and the surroundings was very nice with lots of Old memories. The beauty about the place is the clean and calm water of the sea which is a rarity in many popular beach locations of India. To go upto the last point on Indian mainland it is advised to take a 4 wheel drive jeep from the Rameshwaram town itself. From the Dhanushkodi parking, buses go 2-3 kms before the last. Good excellent beaches. Worth the bumpy ride of 8 km. Cleaner water than those at rameshwaram. Couple of temples on the way. If you love sea shell collection, this is really a good place and for those who like to enjoy the clear waters this the best place I can think of as the water is crystal clear.Spectacular view of sea and the beach. Worth visiting in the evenings to have a nice walk. Too far from Rameswaram, 2 hours drive. Its got a historical significance, but looks like any other beach, the beauty is if you have an AWD & then you can go through the sand & water & generally have blast. Otherwise you have to take rickety vans that go through the beach & water If one want to visit Dhanushkodi, you can go by ur own vehicle or state transport buses upto certain point. After that one can go either by private jeeps, which are costly but they will take you to the farthest point in dhanushkodi or else you can go by shared mini bus. We chose the later. The buses go all. My choice of month was not good. Bumpy ride to dhanush koti was worth and reasonable. Though feel like staying more but sun was harsh. Ghost city is no more ghost city. Ruin can be seen still. The area where you can see bay of Bengal and indian ocean was refused taken by driver. Reason was that point is under navy now. I hardly get time.Must visit: One can see deep and rough water of Indian ocean meeting calm and clear water of bay of Bengal. As water is shallow one can walk in water of bay of Bengal and visualize beautiful corals. Here people take holy bath and visit Lord rameshwara.
Very good beach for taking bath and specially with family. Water is clean and pure but not so many visitors. You can visit Danushkodi old city, it was vanished in 1964 cyclone.
The beach is awesome. The clear blue waters of Indian ocean amazes you. Keep your eyes on the waves as they reach shores; its an out of the world experience. Go for a scooter ride at the beach. Big tyre scooters are available there for ride. This is a must experience.
One of the best beach. But since Sri Lanka is nearby, coast guard won't allow you to visit Ramsethu, extreme tip of Danushkodi Beach. Coast Guard's hovercraft will be visible in the sea. We can even see a tower which controls all signals in the coast maintained by coast guard.Good news: Govt is building road from rameswaram to danushkodi, then you can simply drive to the beach.The remainings of the cyclone is still there.
Ultimate place in India
Dhanushkodi beach is a must see in Rameshwaram. There was a village which got wiped out in 1964 Tsunami. The Private tempo journey was awesome at a moment you can see the jeep going on the water which was one of the best experience one can get. The tempo journey would cost around 100-200 per head. It is totally paisa-vasool trip, you can enjoy the waves which suddenly rise and suddenly decrease. , the waves touching your foot was the best experience,. If you want to go to the last tip then ask the driver. Sit would cost more. The beaches are very clean and neat the colour of water is totally blue. Start trip from the morning. Depart from Rameshwaram around 9. Be careful with the Tempo people, they can charge you more. If you are going in summer be sure to carry hats, water and energy bites.
