Shangumugham Beach - Review

A good way to spend a couple of hours in the city, the Shangumugham Beach is perhaps the most popular beach in Trivandrum after Kovalam beach. The iconic 35 feet mermaid statue is not easy to miss and the beautiful park adjacent to the beach is perfect for children to run around.

Shangumughan Beach has loads to offer. During the Arattu Day, the idols form Padmanabhaswamy Temple are brought here by the royal family to wash them in the Sea and taken to the temple to commence the festival celebrations.

For tourists and locals, the beach is favoured for its calm atmosphere, serene waters and beautiful crimson sunsets which make it a favorite evening spot!

The ‘Star fish restaurant’ is a good place to drop by for a few snacks and coffee later.

Shangumugham Beach, Trivandrum Reviews

  • I like this place very much because of its beauty. Because it has its beauty in its on. The sea view is beautiful. There is so many places which we can take beautiful photos. I loved every second spending there. It is also a nice place to share with our family. The breeze and beauty now also touches me. Over all a beautiful place to spend our time

  • A nice place to spend evenings and for morning exercise like jogging and walking. Lot of small tuck shops and street food vendors but careful about what you eat. The beach area is clean and good for standing against waves and also for playing light sports like football etc. overall cleanliness and safety is good. There is one good restaurant called Coffee house and a small refreshment kiosk next to it. Toilet facilities are decent enough. The beach is a bit overcrowded over the weekends and evenings and may not be suitable for a swim. On some days in the morning you can see fishermen going about their activity, you are welcome to join them and also can buy fresh catch which will be very tasty as well.

  • One of the most beautiful and happening beaches of India! Amazing feel every time one visits the place. Its a vast and pretty decent beach. Can find people exercising, playing football and several other games. The beach has cafeteria and a lot of stalls for snacks and refreshments. There are also beautiful sculptures flanking the beach Awesome spot to spend time in the mornings and evenings.

  • One of the amazing beach. A must visit beach during sunset time. Can spend good amount of time with family and friends. Horse riding is available. Small ice cream shops, chat shops are available for eateries. Especially the sculpture is amazing. As the airport is close, it's beautiful to watch the planes take off and flying over the beach n coconut trees....

  • The quickest get away from the city. A place where heritage, culture and crowds meet. The place was once beautiful but now damaged by the recent tropical cyclones. Still the people of Trivandrum have a special place in their hearts for this beach.
