tourists love to see Sangam (the
confluence point) of the three seas - Bay
of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean it

has a breathtaking 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 beauty of colorful sands
all over has their own aesthetic appeal.
The alluring sunrises and enchanting
sunsets of the place, especially on full
moon days, are enough to cherish a person
to live here forever.
The awesome multi-colored sands of this
beach are unique, though the beach is not
exactly the one to sunbathe on soft golden
sands or go frolicking in the sea waves as
the seashore is rocky and dangerous and
people are regularly warned not to venture
further than the manmade wall running
along the beach to mark the limits.

of the most delightful views of the
Kanyakumari beach of Tamil Nadu is a seashell
collector's delight. However, some of the
greater highlights of the beach are
Vivekananda Rock, a huge stone rising out of
the sea, believed to be the seat of meditation
of the great saint, Swami Vivekananda.
One can see the statue of Vivekananda and a
memorial dedicated to him here. A sacred place
for the followers of Swami Vivekananda, it is
surprising to see such a large number of
Bengalis here in this South Indian state. The
seas are rough and waves splash furiously
against the rocks here.
