Kanyakumari Beach, Kanyakumari

3.1
#1 of 8 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.

Where to stay in Kanyakumari

The end of the line, Kanyakumari has a number of accommodations to host those adventurous enough to come here. Located close to the train station, along the handily named Main Road, you'll find some popular budget options, including family-run guesthouses and simple hotels. Further to the south along the thoroughfare, things get a little more upmarket. Take a look at the beachside hotels, offering rooms from which you can watch the sunrise without getting out of bed.
