Lighthouse Beach
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.

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.
