Visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial, sitting iconically upon one of two rocks sticking out from the middle of the sea. Swami Vivekananda is said to have attained enlightenment on these rocks, with a towering statue overlooking the endless ocean built in his honor. Two meditation halls offer a surreal experience for the spiritual, with the isolated rocks offering the perfect atmosphere to clear one’s mind. The ground itself can get quite hot, which can be uncomfortable as you must take your shoes off.

  • The best tourist attractions of the kanyakumari. The boating to memorial and from the memorial is smooth but gets crowded on weekends. The place is very well maintained. The memorial gives a good view of the nearby coastline and the mighty ocean. The domain of explorers who look for tranquility and serenity. A wonderful place where two sea and one ocean meet. It feels very relaxing and soothing while facing the very speedy winds there. One can see the sunrise as well as sunset there.Overall a great experience to visit.
  • One of the best corner where land touches in the Indian Ocean. Beautiful place to sit and enjoy the sun rise and sunset. You can see crowd especially during sun rise and sunset. It was a wonderful experience for me and my nephews in our trip. Hotels are very cheap. No much Maintanance or cleaning Don’t buy anything from the local shops there, because it is a group of people/thieves & thy also don’t know how the manners and also don’t know how to deal with customer. Better to keep away from them.
  • Very good memorial of Swami Vivekananda. It has a meditation hall inside where you can meditate and beware!! YOU CAN'T BRING SMALL CHILDREN INSIDE THE HALL ALSO SHOULD PUT YOUR PHONE IN SILENT MODE. Moreover, it has some stalls inside where you can purchase different things related to Swami Vivekananda (such as books, statue and pictures). Overall, a very calm and peaceful place to visit.
  • Enjoy the ferry service. Put your ass down near the entry door of Ferry so that water waves could splash at you. There is a space for meditation. Please do meditate there. If you don't know how to meditate, just close your eyes, stay calm, observe the silence and try to observe your breathing pattern if possible. You'll feel the difference.
  • In morning there is so much crowd u have to get in line to reach their via ferry and there is also special entry ticket which will give you 1 entry to ferry in starting of ferry only then it's on you whenever you want to come back by any ferry. It's so clean there. You have to open your shoes to enter rock memorial.
