Discover the splendiferous Kanyakumari Beach.

The India's Land's end Kanyakumari is unequaled in being encircled by three seas that is Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean, and Arabian sea. Hence the confluence is called 'Thriveni Sangamam". Here one can get a breath-taking view of the Sun Shine and Sun Set at their best. The multi colored sand yet another incomparable feature of the Beach here

The Kanyakumari beach with multi-colored sand and rocky boundary is unquestionably one of the most beautiful beaches in south India and offers a great change from all other beaches. The waves that hit the shore are quite strong and frequent, that means that one does not get to enjoy a step into the shallow water or a sea bath.

The shore being rocky makes it more unsafe to venture out to the sea, so people are asked to stay within the prescribed zone. You can shop for shells that are on sale on the Kanyakumari beach. There is a lighthouse on the beach from where one can get a beautiful view of the sea.

Kanyakumari beach has a magnificent sight with multi-colored sand lapped by the outreaching ocean waves. You may not find the golden sand to laze around while you sunbathe, but the visual aspect of colorful sands all over has their own aesthetic entreaty. The seashore is rough and rocky with man made embankment that adds to the beauty of the beach. A lighthouse stands high on the shore from where one can have a splurge of panoramic view of the area.
