Vizhinjam Lighthouse, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Climb up the red-and-white-striped Vizhinjam Lighthouse for a spectacular view of the Kovalam area. Built in 1972, the lighthouse stands 36 m (118 ft) tall and offers a 360 degree view. The narrow spiral stairs can take the wind out of you, but once you reach the top, you'll be glad you made the effort. See a beautiful coastline of white sand, swaying palm trees, and colorful sunshades from a bird's-eye perspective. Let the cold ocean breeze refresh you as you enjoy the sight of waves crashing over rocks and the horizon spreading to infinity. Take a look at our Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) tour planner to schedule your visit to Vizhinjam Lighthouse and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The light house is a must go attraction and offers some of the best views of the beach. It has been recently renovated and has a lift, however the final climb is using a ladder and may not be friendly...  more »
  • Very beautiful place to visit to get an amazing view of sea. Lift facility is available but that does not take you at top. One has to take stairs to go on top & those stairs are very steep. 
  • A must see one of place on kovalam beach. There is lift reach on top of the light house. You can visit in morning for enjoy atmosphere of kovalam beach.
