A nice place to relax. Needs more maintenance by the local administration. Sea is rough when visited. Observed more under currents. Needs to be careful. The sculpture nearby is awesome.

Surely this one is the best and safest family beach in trivandrum. We can roam here even at midnight. Good rush, full of families. One of my favorite family hang out location inside trivandrum. Good to try pani puri, thattukada food etc.

Except for parking this is a nice beach if you want to relax at noon. It is not so far from trivandrum downtown. A lovely place to visit clean and peaceful. I will be back for sure.

Udaya suites is nearer to the Airport. I would also recommend Hotel Highland or any other good hotels in Thampanoor area. Local food easily available. Use taxi or Auto to commute.
