The beautiful Kanyakumari beach is flocked by millions of tourists every year. Its multi-coloured sand and azure waters cast a spell on the visitors. The beach area is quite rocky. The beach also houses a lighthouse on its shore. It was built 100 year ago. It is situated on a land mass around 105 feet above sea level. It is a tower like structure built to give guidance and warning to ships. It contains a beacon light to serve as an aid to navigation. The lighthouse offers picture- perfect views of the beach. The tower is worth a visit.
