A beautiful beach, must see for all tourist, Indian/Global. The unique place where one can see both sunset and sun rise over sea. If you are lucky and get clear sky (no clouds/haze) the view will be unforgettable for life. One should try to stay as near sea shore as possible to get full treatment.Lot of other tourist attractions also... More

good place but beware about the local auto drivers as the fare is not reasonable...In the beach too much crowd on weekends .... Sunset was beautiful, the view from the light house gives a more beautiful look of the city and allthe attractions of Kanyakumary

The sunset point is about 3 Kms from the main town. This is known to all the local taxi and auto drivers and will take you there for a price agreed in advance. Be prepared to be pestered by a large number of photographers offering to make your best portfolio in a matter of 10 minutes. This, however, is not... More

Dirty and uninspiring. Beaches around Kovalam are definitely better, but if you're really after a decent beach experience in India you're far better off visiting Lakshadweep ro Andaman. Main attraction of Kanyakumari is that it happens to be the southernmost point of India: you definitely shouldn't come here for the beaches!

Kanyakumari lies at southern end of India, at Tamil Nadu state. If you are planning for a Kerala tour and travel unto Trivandrum/Kovalam try to extend one day to Kanyakumari too. Kanyakumari is approximately 100km from trivandrum and is 2.5hrs drive one side.If you are travelling from Trivandrum/Kovalam to Kanyakumari make sure you take the route through poovar at least...

The view from the beach is amazing but it is not so comfortable if you plan to take a sea bath. There are small stones in the area where it is safe to take bath. There is a huge market near the beach.
