“Kanyakumari”
Reviewed 7 December 2010

A significant pilgrim center Kanyakumari is placed at the southern most angle of India, the point where Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal congregate. Kanyakumari is also renowned for its fantastic sunrises and sunsets, particularly on full moon days.

“Nice location with a very few visiting locations”
Reviewed 24 November 2010

It's a small island like city at the end of country. Be careful, not to take a tour package. Else the travel becomes hectic and time is less to spend in the city. Better to book on your own a spend a whole day atleast. The sunrise, sunset at the beaches, mahatma gandhi museum and all country cuisine is a good passtime.

“Bottom tip of India excellent view of sun rise & set.”
Reviewed 31 July 2010

Kanyakumari is the southernmost point of peninsular India and the meeting point of three oceans-the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. Besides its importance as a Hindu pilgrim center, it is famous for its beautiful views of sunrise and sunset over the waters. The multicolored sand is a unique feature of the beach here.

“3 Oceans Intersect here”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

The waves meet each other and have a breathtaking view. You can enjoy the beautiful sunsrise or sunset. If you stay at Trivanrdum you can go and spend a day at Kanyakumari. You can also see Srilanka from the tip.
