Red sands and blue sea draw visitors to Shanghumukham Beach, where you can play sports or sit in a starfish-shaped cafe watching the sun cast its rays over the water. A sculpture of Jalakanyaka, a 35 m (115 ft) long mermaid reposing in a giant shell, attracts kids and adults alike. Very active in the evening, this popular spot can also get very crowded on weekends, so come early if you wish to take advantage of onsite parking.

  • It is a good beach but little dangerous than the nearby beaches. People comes here mostly in the evenings. Children loves to play here. Also, people comes here for meetups, dance practice and all. The beach is maintained and kept very nicely. Almost 5 live guards are here most of the time to ensure safety. Since it is a dangerous beach, people are not allowed to go much into the sea. One can also experience a horse riding here.
  • One of my favourite beaches. Ideal place for family hangouts. Provides the serene environment for you to spend some romantic moment with your loved ones. There are coffee shops and snack bars in the vicinity which are apt for a quick bite.
  • Good small beach for having some quiet time with family. Not much safe on evenings with very high waves. Rides available for kids. Old coffee house provides decent food at decent price.
  • One of the best beaches in kerala. Had a great time here. Best for family visits. One of the cleanest beaches. Usually crowded . Beautiful scenery. Indian Coffee house hotel is there just opposite of the beach.
  • Well maintained beach, definitely worth a visit. The waters are actually clean considering it's the main beach of the capital city of a state. Good relaxing spot and the mermaid statue is definitely worth a visit.
