Trip to Kanyakumari: Chapter 14: Muttom Beach: Part 1: Sunset

After Mathoor Hanging Bridge we went back to Nagercoil and then took a bus for Muttom. The famous beach at Muttom is located about 16 kms from Nagercoil and 32 kms from Kanyakumari. Muttom is famous for its beautiful landscaping and high rocks dipping into the sea at the beach-side. The sun set view point at Muttom is one of the most Panoramic view points in the district. However so far this beautiful beach has always been unsafe for the tourists since the rocks on which tourists go to see the sea view are slippery and a number of fatal accidents have occurred over the past few years. The district administration, decided to put protective stainless steel fencing across the entire dangerous areas and also to put up small open huts at the rock tops for the tourists to sit and watch the massive sea waves leisurely with protection from sun and rain. The fencing work and the small huts have already been completed to the delight of the tourists who mob the beach in hundreds during week ends. Sitting benches have also been constructed in a circle for the elders to chit-chat, relax and enjoy the sun set. Seeing the response of the tourists, the district administration has sanctioned for the construction of a toilet complex, a small shopping complex and a children’s park at a cost of Rs.11.60 lakhs and there are plans to undertake sculpture – works across the rocks to add to the ambiance of the area. We reached Muttom at about 5.45 pm. Just near the bus stop I saw this light-house. It is a century old light-house built by the British.

I could see the sun going down and we rushed to the beach. The beach is quite close to the bus stop. First I took this video of the beach:

Then, I started clicking sunset photos. Here are they:
