“A typical beach also known as Kovalam beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

The right time to visit the beach in the evening at around 5pm so that one can stay and get to watch the sunset. It is absolutely marvelous and gives Kanyakumari a run for the money.

This beach is always packed as even the residents of Trivandrum frequent this place.

“A great place to unwind and relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

This is the beach closest to the city, where you go to unwind and relax from the day's work.
This isn't the most touristy spot, maybe because the sea isn't very calm here and the beach itself not very wide. Evenings around sunset are the best and most crowded times- from stray dogs who usually don't mind you to the children, families, groups playing ball and even the crabs that scuttle under the wet sand. Though, when you sit facing the sea, that's all that you see.

“Nice beach, just 8 km from trivandrum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

This beach is worth a visit after 5 pm. You can take bus at trivandrum City bus terminal at East Fort bus station, directly to the Shanghumukham beach for just Rs 11 per person.

Beach having seating facility for a view and refresh our self by cool wind. There are some wonderful chat seller, mango slice with salt and chili powder on it, pop corns etc.

“Unkempt beach”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

The bridge is the only attraction there which is also not up to the mark. Whole of the beach has dead fishes and Jelly fishes and also nothing much you can do there. Not up to the mark and expectations. Cleanliness is bad. You can actually see all the fishes, crabs and all other stuff.
