  • Shankumugam is a lovely and good maintained beach in Thiruvananthapuram. This beach is usually crowded with all age groups. More rush will be on weekends. Area wise and look wise, this is one of the best in state. Best time to visit the place is evening (for sunset). High mast lights are available here, so we can enjoy the late night beauty of the Arabian sea.

  • One of the most popular and rushy beach in TVM. This place has its own vibe and scenic beauty. If you are a photographer you can get so many different portraits and seascapes pictures from this place.
