Kanyakumari beach


Kanyakumari is the southern most tip of India. It is the place of union for the three oceans - The Arabian sea, Bay of Bengal and the Indian ocean meet here. Kanyakumari is an important pilgrimage center, attracting several thousand pilgrims to its surroundings. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular, especially on full moon days. The beach is a beautiful sight with multi-coloured sand, but it does not really offer one the opportunity to sunbathe on soft golden sands, or to frolic in the waves either. Its beauty and charm offers a welcome change to the tourists and pilgrims. A variety of shells are on sale on Kanyakumari beach.

The Sangam Sangam is the meeting point of the three major bodies of water, the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. It is a bathing ghat, with steps leading into the water and a sort of lagoon formed between land by a series of rocks. People bathe and jump around, getting lightly battered by the remains of waves, which are washing over the rocks.
