Dubbed as the tip of India, Kanyakumari is known for its beautiful beaches, Vivekananda Memorial and the ever-so perfect sunset. Indeed it is one of the most exotic places to visit in India. One can find destinations here that can never cease to amaze, there are temples, churches, religious pillars and statues everywhere. The perfect mix of culture of the place is reflected in the art, architecture and even in the local cuisine of Kanyakumari. Those who enjoy history can undertake an excursion to the Kumari Amman Temple or to the Vattakottai Fort. Chilling at seashores like Sanguthurai Beach, Sothavilai Beach amongst plenty others is simply exotic. The wax museum is a different yet equally alluring place for tourists and is must see in the city.

Sunset point, rocks, beach is a km away

Good sea fishes being fried and sold, they were delicious. No parmanent shops, but few road-side vendors were available. Parking is available. Beach is about a km away from here and can be seen from this point. However, there is a very small beach area which can be used by children.

Clean & clear beach!

Kanyakumari beach is clean and clear that makes it perfect. Just sitting on the sea shore with your partner in the evening as well as night, makes it a perfect view. Tea, coffee, bhajias, etc are available for purchase.

The Kanyakumari Beach

The beach is not well maintained because there is a flee market just to the beach and lot of crowed goes through. Flee market offers sea stones and coastal things. You will find people bathing also at this beach. Due to rocks tides come bit slower but not that much clean or safe to have Bath. Sunset view can be enjoyed if you miss at Vivekananda Rock memorial.
