The next morning we got up at 7 and had our breakfast. Just near the coffee shop I found this map of Kanyakumari painted on a board. It’s very useful if you want to see the route of nearby places of Kanyakumari. For this reason I have added it as full resolution. Just click on the map or the below link to see it in full resolution:
This day we thought of going to Sothavilai Beach. First we took a bus and reached Nagercoil as there are no direct buses from Kanyakumari. Then, we got into another bus, which would take us to Sothaviali. The Sothavilai beach is one among the most important beaches in the district of Kanyakumari. It is also one among the most seriously affected areas of the district during the 2004 Tsunami. This beach is about 10 Kms from Kanyakumari, is one of the best natural beaches of the district. The beach has shallow water and High sand dunes on the background. The District Administration has through its own funds and through the funds of MPLAD scheme, put up rest shelters, cottages and a view tower over here for the benefit of tourists. The tourists can reach the beach through the newly laid coastal road, which is a very beautiful drive along the seacoast. That’s the entrance of the beach:
When I saw the beach I was amazed by the color. It was fluorescent blue.
The beach here stretches over 4 km, which make it one among the longest beaches in Tamil Nadu.
In this photo you can see the nice blend of colors, brown (sand), white (foam), blue (water), fluorescent blue (water), deep blue (water), light blue (sky). Wow simply amazing!

Near the beach there was a view tower.
