Sunset Point, Kanyakumari Overview

Whoever says that sunsets are hyped has never visited the Sunset Point in Kanyakumari, which provides breathtaking and magnificent views of the setting sun amidst the clear bright sky in the background, and the pure blue waters underneath it. Formerly known as Cape Comorin, Kanyakumari is located at the southernmost tip of the Indian Peninsula and is famous all across the country for having some of the best views and sceneries. A must visit place for every visitor to Kanyakumari, the Sunset Point is the confluence of three ocean bodies: the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea, which is also known as the Triveni Sangam. This confluence makes the scenes even more special and breathtakingly unique. What is more thrilling is the opportunity to see the setting sun and the moon rise simultaneously on full moon nights.

It is then no reason to wonder why the Sunset Point attracts visitors from all over the world. The lighthouse further adds to the beauty of the views that can be enjoyed from here, and the place offers the opportunity to click some fantastic photos because of the beautiful interplay of the light and the ocean water. Additionally, if you are lucky enough, you will be able to witness the tides moving in a parallel direction to the shoreline and the ocean waters mixing and mingling beautifully in different shades of light and dark blue, which can easily be differentiated by the naked eye. Just off the mainland, you can also see the colossal statue of the Tamil poet and saint Thiruvalluvar, and the Vivekananda Memorial adjacent to it.
