A baeutiful sunset at Shangumugham.

Far away from the bustles of Kovalam beach, lies Shangumugham; which is beautiful and in fact enjoyable. Less crowds makes it a more beautiful place to watch the setting sun. Had it been free of all those litters and the wastes dumped by tourists, it should have been a very wonderful site to enjoying the setting of our star. I was there during the time when sea is getting calmer after succumbing the lives of so many fisherman.Shangumgham is well connected by public transport network. Overall this is a very good beach with beautiful shoreline and a calm atmosphere.

Get a feel of the local culture

At a distance of about one hour drive from Kovalam is another pristine beach. This beach with clean white sand is enchanting. On the beach there is an old bridge supposed to be used by Portuguese for landing their merchandise. The bridge is in a deplorable condition but is nice to watch the sea from there. There is also huge mermaid sculpture nearby which is fascinating. There is a Durga temple nearby and the deity is worshiped as Swayamwara Parvathi . Locals believe that worshiping goddess here speeds up marriage for unmarried devotees.
