Kanyakumari Beach is Beautiful but Dangerous too

Once the Kanyakumari beach was pretty long and was beautiful. Some time back, the Kanyakumari beach was altered by spreading huge stones which now made the beach very narrow and also dangerous. The beach is full of rocks and the waves collide over it and come to the shore which is very beautiful to watch.

The sand on the Kanyakumari beach is very beautiful as it is multi-coloured and it has a myth with the Bhagavathi Amman present in the Kanyakumari Bhagavathi Amman Temple. Hindus bathe in the beach and worship Devi Bhagavathi Amman.

It is not fit to splurge or bath in the Kanyakumari Beach, but one can watch the beauty of the beach from the shore and can dip their feet from the shore in the sea water. Tourists are restricted and warned to stay off the rocks by the policemen since it may be dangerous to climb on the rocks present inside the sea.

The sea shore is very good place to sit and watch the beautiful beach and children can enjoy playing on the shore with careful watching.

It is very fine to watch the Sun rise and Sun set from this beautiful beach as the sea and sky looks orange in colour. Also on Chitra Pournami day, one can watch the Sight of Full Moon Rising and the Sun Set at the same place in same moment. This can be seen only at Kanyakumari in the entire Country.
