    Last land piece of India, Kanyakumari
    I visited this place while riding from Delhi to Kanyakumari. It was my last destination during the trip and the most memorable one. It's one of the most beautiful places in India with unique sunrise and sunset points. The sunrise in the morning is really mesmerizing. One has to wake up early to watch the sunrise or else miss it. You can sit by the ocean and enjoy the view. The Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal merge at this point. It is also an ideal place to observe sunrise and sunset. There is also the last land of southern India. One can also view Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Thiruvalluvar statues. A trip of 2 nights and 3 days is enough to explore the best elements of Kanyakumari. I spent 2 nights and one of the best two nights. I stayed at Vivekananda Ashram which cost me ₹336 per room but the washroom is common. But it's very neat and clean and also very secured. There are AC rooms also available but because i was budget traveling,i took the cheapest. Other than this, one can book lodges between ₹500-₹600 also. The food was nice in Kanyakumari. I tried their chana chat which you will get near the beach. Other than this raw mango chat, bhelpuri, corn are also available on the beach. I hope this is useful to all the travelers. You can ask questions if you have any doubts. Have a happy traveling.

    Last point of India
    Last point of India or tip of India. A must visited place. You can see the sangam point of 3 seas, Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea. In the evening , if weather is clear you can see a great sunset and in the morning you can witness Sun rise as well. You can spend hours there and watch ocean and its waves. lot of street food hawkers are there you can enjoy cut fruits and other local items.

    Nice albeit Crowded
    The place has been on my list for long. Finally managed to visit the place this month. The sight of the confluence of 3 seas was very pretty. Sadly, didn’t find the ghats to be clean with clothes and food wrappers strewn across. There are too many food vendors near the beach, adding to litter by the beach side.

    Avoid the midday sun
    It’s a significant place to visit with the meeting of the three seas and the swami Vivekananda stone memorial. Glad I was able to make it part of my itinerary. Positives - there are public laboratories and a multitude of stalls selling hats, food, juices and even warm jackets! Negatives - big queues to catch the boat to and from the island. There is a ‘special’ queue for those who want the fast track more expensive option (R/s 300). Suggest going when the sun is not so fierce and take a hat!

Kanyakumari beach is the southern most tip of India known for being the only place where you can see the sunrise and the sunset. When we visited the skies were overcast so we could not enjoy the colours of the sunrise and sunset. The beach is clean but not visited by tourists due to the rough seas and currents. It's not a safe beach to play in. A good stroll on the beach is safe though.

Hey guys, hope you are good. What to say about Kanyakumari..you heard that song right..Kashmir se Kanyakumari from Chennai express..you will have same feeling. I was like aww situation..thinking that I am standing at tail of Bharat..and then only water Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean ..two different colours of water green and blue. You must go to this place if you want to visit this beautiful planet “ earth “ before we die. I am very superstitious so relate everything with that. You can get hotels easily, we took help from auto guys. They know many hotels..just give some extra money to them. Vivekanand rock memorial it will take 4 to 5 hrs so plan ur trip accordingly.From Bangalore it will take 15 hrs by bus. We went via srs sleeper bus. They have good services with reasonable rate. It was family trip.My parents liked it a lot. Have fun..cheers!

* It is the southern most tip of Indian Sub Continent.
* There is one spot in Kanyakumari, where all the three water bodies, Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal meet each other.
* We visited this place from Kerala, so you need a permit(arranged by taxi driver) to enter Tamil Nadu & enjoy the beauty & vibe of the last place of the Indian sub continent.
* There are large no. of shops selling sea shell artefacts, coconuts etc.
* There are no such luxury hotels or famous restaurants at this place.
* Tourists/locals come here to witness the beautiful sunset.
* NH-44(Delhi to Kanyakumari) ends here.
* There are so many roadside sadhus, who tell your future by various interesting ways(@ cheap price).
* We think, a day trip is enough to explore this unique place.

One of the best place to visit in South India.

You will definitely feel the moment of happiness when you are standing in the southern most tip of Indian Subcotinent.
For the last two weeks of December, watching sunrise wasn't clear as it was fully covered with clouds. So make sure that the sky is clear by the time you visit there to have the best view of sunrise.

Many hotels are available for affordable prices facing the sea.

Boating to thiruvalluvar statue and vivekanandar memorial open from 8am to 4 pm.

this place is too crowded and people don't maintain cleanliness so it become dirty but view is awesome. It's called Triveni sangam because Indian Ocean, Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal sea meet here. Kanyakumari is the most southern land point of India.

Kanyakumari Beach is another example of government apathy towards tourist destinations. The place is littered with hawkers selling their wares. It is a confluence of 3 oceans, The Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal.
