It is not everyday that you get to enjoy the view of the vast, deep, blue ocean from a land so blessed with natural bliss and history. Kanniyakumari Beach attracts visitors from all nooks of the globe, for not just being a pristine beach where you can spend quality time, but also for a handful of architectural wonders that stand as a testimony to the legends that adorn the history of the region. Quaint, picturesque and historic, Kanniyakumari Beach is a destination like very few others.
Located at the southernmost coast of the Indian peninsula, Kanniyakumari Beach offers attractions that are highly unique. Here is where you can see the confluence of three major water bodies that in many ways define this uniqueness – the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea. Watching these vast waterbodies converge and become one is a sight to behold. Kanniyakumari is also the only place on Earth from where you can see the spectacular sights of sunrise and sunset from the very same location. You can also see the sun and the moon facing each other in the same horizon during the day of ‘Chitra Paurnami’, the day when full moon occurs during April-May season. Another spectacle that makes the view from the beach breathtaking is the Vivekananda Rock Memorial which is situated on an island on the sea. Adjacent to the memorial is the big statue of Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar.
All these amazing sights and experiences make the Kanniyakumari Beach a must-visit destination by all means, on your visit to Tamil Nadu.
