The beauty of a coastline is reflected in the beaches that adorn it. There are certain shores that are naturally blessed with multiple beaches that lure a large number of visitors. The Kanniyakumari coast is one such blissful shore that hosts a number of breathtaking beaches that are visited by millions of tourists annually. Among these amazing destinations is one beach that stands out, famed for its exciting ambiance and enthralling experiences – Sanguthurai Beach.
Considered to be one of the cleanest beaches in Kanyakumari, Sanguthurai Beach offers unique views of the sea. The majesty of the Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Thiruvalluvar Statue can be experienced from this shore. The sands are inviting and the waves are stunning. Located 10 km away from Kanyakumari town, the beach isn’t crowded, making it an ideal place to relax and enjoy quality time. One of the unique features of this beach is the sculpture of ‘Sangu’ or conch. This interesting work of art adds a lot of charm to the already beautiful beach. The conch is believed to be from the time of Cholas and is thus a centerpiece that attracts both tourists and history buffs alike.
The beach is ideal to enjoy the waters by taking a dip or engaging in beach sporting activities.
