    Kanyakumari Beach, located in India’s southernmost state, is a spectacular hue-changing beach that sits at the confluence of three bodies of water: the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea. The beach is not suitable for swimming or surfing because the sea is rough and the beach is rocky.


    The dawn at Kanyakumari is the main attraction for visitors. While beach dawn is usually beautiful, the sun’s first rays striking the waves of all three oceans that encircle the Indian Peninsula—the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea—is really amazing. The three various hues of the three seas’ waters may be seen here, which is quite an experience. The beach is sandy, and when the crowds aren’t there, it’s also incredibly tranquil and beautiful. It’s also a fantastic beach for swimming and sunbathing, and the holiday seasons always draw a large number of visitors. The sunset at Kanyakumari, on the other hand, is similarly spectacular since, for most of the year, one may view the sunset and the moonrise at the same time. It is a spectacular sight to witness.

    Goddess Kumari, the young, virginal, and unmarried incarnation of Goddess Parvati are said to have performed severe penance for Lord Shiva and gained him as her consort by standing on the final rock of the seashore, today known as Vivekananda Rock. Even after her victory, the Lord stands her up on the day of her wedding because she must slay a demon to fulfill a prophecy she made previously. She agrees, but is infuriated by the humiliation and decides to live the rest of her life as a ‘kumari.’ Her bridal decorations were all transformed into conches and seashells, and the turmeric and vermillion that remained were used to paint the Kanyakumari dunes in various colors.
