Very attractive place but has a long query for steamer. A spl ticket category (5 times the normal price) has almost no queue but steamer etc are common. The steamer ride is about 10 mts.

arguably the best attraction of KanyaKumarika. A gem and a life time memory. Locatted inside bayof Bengal on a rock this temple offers a pictresque beauty. Try to spend couple of minutes in "Dhyan mandir" with closed eyes and you will have a divine feel.

There you can see 3 different color of sea. Good place, built on rocks. You can get best view of sea and sea waves after 4:00 pm. Sometimes they closed Ferry rides / boats around 4:15- 4:30 because of high tides and higher waves..

For me, if you take Vivekananda Rock Memorial out of Kanyakumari visit, then there is nothing in there! The only good thing to happen to me during my recent visit is being there at this Memorial. There is a ferry to take people across the short distance inside the sea to this memorial. Its a small island of rock base,... More

It was a lovely experience. We were there on a weekday, but the ferry line was still long. We took a ferry in the morning and had to wait for 45min in the queue. The place is good., worth visiting if you are in Kanyakumari. The ferry queue while going back is also quite long usually, so be prepared if... More

Nice place, but to reach there is a very long queue, on an average we have to wait 60-90 minutes., as there are only 2 ferry. On the memorial there is a very calm and peaceful environment. Go for it.
