The place gives you a feeling of calm and peace. The scenic beauty is marvelous and one of a kind in then whole world. The view of the sea around makes you feel humble and wonder at the creation of God.

“Wonderful structures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Don't spend in queue of 30rs, pay Rs.150 & get direct entry in boat.

This boat will take you to first Vivekananda Rock Memorial & then to next rock Saint Tiruvalluvre statue.

Both place is vey tidy & clean, we can feel vibrations.

I got souvenir from Vivekananda Rock Memorial as well as wonderful books on Swami Vivekananda in Hindi & English.

PS : Jetty is run by Govt board.

Watch-out for Longs queues. Length of que fluctuates from 10 minutes to 1 hour. Check with locals/hotel reception.
