#1 of 12 in Parks in Kanyakumari
Set at India's southernmost tip, Kanyakumari Beach offers views of the Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean, and Bay of Bengal. The multicolored sand beach features a rough, rocky coast; and while not the place for swimming or sunbathing, you can walk out on the jetty or sit back and admire the view of a 40.6 m (133 ft) statue to Tamil poet Tiruvalluvar out on the water. Bring your camera to capture the rugged shoreline and towering monument. To visit Kanyakumari Beach and other attractions in Kanyakumari, use our Kanyakumari road trip planner.

  • The southern tip of India! One of the best place where you can see a sun rise as well as a sunset either or both by your choice. I would suggest for a sunrise early in the morning, which is a stunning glorified view. If you want to witness a sunrise, get a spot early as possible by the beach or for better vision people prefer a spot in the sea bridge. ( Both of them are good spots). And hope to not be a cloudy sky for the better view of sunrise.
  • this is one of the best beach in india. The location is really awesome and the view is fantastic. It is clean and well maintained beach. the water is also clean. you can go and spend good time there. Go in the morning or evening.
  • Calm & serene. Place is worth visiting once in lifetime. Its not common beach but 3 oceans meeting point which you clearly see. The sound of waves feels so soothing that you will forget all your worries. Vivekananda rock memorial is accessible in day hours only so do not miss this. Surrounded by oceans brings totally different feel. If you get option please catch sunrise or sunset there. It was unforgettable. Capture scenic views as much as you want.
  • This beach is a wonderland for any and every phtotographer. It has amazing views of sunset and sunrise. Its a meeting point of three oceans in India namely the Indian ocean, the Arabian Sea, and the Bay of Bengal. It's also very crowded and full of tourists due to it's religious significance in the Indian mythology. It has a very popular Tamil temple and a very famous temple of Swami Vivekananda. It's also the southern most top of India where the three oceans meet. The streets are busy with all kind of shops from street food outlets to hotels. Every Traveller can find a place to stay in various budget categories. From Photography point of view, a cloudy day would ideal to play around different hues of sun. Also, the ocean provides great scope for long exposure Photography lovers. One could easily create photographs for 30s without using any filter. Also, sky lovers can find decent dark sky and enjoy star gazing around the sea area specially near the new moon. There's a fishing market at the sea front which also makes a nice place for great photo opportunity. The golden hours are killer with gorgeous light.
  • It is a good place, where we can find calmness and serenity all around. But, the things I didn't like was the extreme dirtiness of the place, with trash being thrown into the convergence of the three oceans. People should be warned about littering this magnificent place, with so much of historical and cultural importance. There are various places and points to view the beautiful and bright sunrises and fading sunsets. Beautiful place, awareness should be brought in.
