Tourists can find both popular locations and undiscovered gems in Kanyakumari. Each location has its own distinct charm and presents visitors with a unique experience. When we hear about Kanyakumari, the only things that come to mind are the Thiruvalluvar Statue, the Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi Memorials, as well as the breathtaking sunrise and sunset. In this blog, we will look at some of the underrated tourist attractions in Kanyakumari.
Hidden Twin Beach
The Hidden Twin Beach, as its name suggests, is one of Kanyakumari’s lesser-known attractions. Even though it is only 2.6 kilometres from Kanyakumari, the drive to the beach is lovely and provides a wonderful view of the huge sea. The promenade offers the ideal resting spot for visitors to sit and unwind while distantly admiring the sunset as well as the Vivekananda Memorial. It’s a great place to hang out with friends, family and special ones because of the rocks and sandy beaches. It is also among the most romantic locations in Kanyakumari.
Rock Beach- Muttom Beach
The beach is about 17 kilometres from Nagercoil and 75 kilometres from Trivandrum. It is one of the most unusual beaches in Kanyakumari, and it is special since there are much more pebbles than sand there. Get your hotel booking in Kanyakumari done in advance so that you spend quality time enjoying the trip rather than standing for the booking to be done.
This alluring beach is just nine minutes from Anjugramam and is situated northeast of Kanyakumari. Locals who enjoy the area’s lovely scenery and spotless shore are the main visitors to this underappreciated location. Hotels in Kanyakumari near beach provide a great area to swim since these are considerably cleaner than others. It is also one of the most romantic locations in Kanyakumari and is also a beautiful excellent location for pre-wedding photo shoots.
The Bhagavati Temple And The Chitharal Jain Monuments
The Bhagavati Temple and the Chitharal Jain Monuments are located about 55 kilometres northwest of Kanyakumari, close to the southernmost point of peninsular India. They are made up of stone beds with writings and two monuments: a Jain temple cut into the rock with reliefs on the exterior walls and a Hindu goddess temple adjacent to it that was built during the time of Vikramaditya Varaguna Pandya.

Marunthu Kottai Fort
The Marunthu Kottai Fort, also known as the Fort of Medicine, was constructed in the 17th century under the rule of King Bala Marthanda Varma. The term “Fort of Medicine” comes from the fact that this place was used to cure soldiers. One of Kanyakumari’s outstanding historical sites, the fort is still in ruins and is surrounded by vegetation. This extraordinary site is 36 kilometres from Kanyakumari. It is a best-kept secret of Kanyakumari where cyclists and hikers travel too often.
