Dhanushkodi Beach, Rameswaram
(4.3/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
A tour of Dhanushkodi Beach allows you to see how a bustling city became a ghost town after a natural disaster. A 1964 cyclone destroyed a railway line that caused over 100 deaths, while the total toll eventually reached over 1,800 casualties. When you visit, note how small islets and a series of rocks indicate where a small land connection exists between Sri Lanka and the southeastern tip of India. Visit during daylight hours if you don't like exploring spooky abandoned towns on your own. Put Dhanushkodi Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Rameswaram trip builder.
