Beach Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

The main accommodations in Thiruvananthapuram proper lie to the north of the main train station. Ranging from boutiques set in colonial-era buildings to side street youth hostels with dormitory-style rooms, the choice throughout the city covers a wide range. However, plenty of visitors to Thiruvananthapuram choose to stay closer to the coast instead, arranging day trips to the city itself. Nearby beach resorts, such as Varkala and Kovalam, rank high on visitors' lists, with abundances of boutique hotels, beach huts, and resorts.
