Where to stay in Kanyakumari

About Kanyakumari

A charming getaway destination near the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean, Kanyakumari has a bounty of beaches, coves and waterfalls. It also harbours ancient temples and religious memorial sites dedicated to deities, such as the goddesses Parvati and Durga.

Things to do

The spectacular Kanyakumari Temple attracts thousands of pilgrims every year who pay their respects to the goddess Devi Kumari Amman. Admire the intricate carvings and statues of the temple while immersing yourself in tales of the goddess Durga and the famous Shiva Tandav dance.

The Vivekananda Rock Memorial immortalises the philosopher and activist Swami Vivekananda, while the Tsunami Monument honours those who perished in the 2004 tsunami. Have lunch in one of the small family-owned cafes surrounding the monuments or browse handicraft shops for local wares and souvenirs.

Powdery white beaches stretch along the coastline, including Sanguthurai Beach with its snack shacks, beach shops, picnic gazebos and playground. Have tea and snacks at Sothavilai Beach, then head to the hills for waterfall hikes, cycling trails and horseback riding.

Family time is easy at Bay Watch, a water-themed amusement park with thrilling rides, wave pools, a giant wheel, lazy river and a crazy-chair attraction. Visit the Baywatch Wax Museum, which has lifelike wax figures of national celebrities, politicians and entertainers.

Getting around

Trivandrum International Airport is 67 kilometres from Kanyakumari. You can hire a cab or rent a car or use taxis, auto rickshaws and buses.
