Vizhinjam Lighthouse, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)
(4.1/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • There is series of beaches at Kovalam and this is located near one of them which is must see place in Kovalam....good view point. 
  • Good location for photography lovers. Beach is neat and clean and rocky cliffs. Greenery of coconut tree farms in one side and other side touches the sea.. 
  • Lighthouse is famous beach of Kovalam. It is close to Trivandrum. You can go on the top of lighthouse. Best view from top in the evening
