Some beaches evoke a distinctive emotion. Even the first glimpse tells you many stories of how these sandy wonders become an integral part of the socio-cultural and recreational fabric of a destination. For Thiruvananthapuram, this beach is Shankumugham. For the old residents of the city, the beach in their mind reflects a sepia tone image – a splendorous nostalgia of the good old days. For the current crop of youngsters, the beach is their go-to spot to gather and have a good time. For visitors, Shankumugham offers a unique beach experience.
Whether for a breathtaking view of the majestic sunset, or for some calming sea breeze, or even to spend some quality time with your dear and near, Shankumugham is the beach to be in Thiruvananthapuram. There is a beautiful sculpture next to the beach called ‘Malsyakanyaka’, which is a sight to behold. The ‘Arattumandapam’ is also located on the beach, which is a beautiful stone structure used for the holy bath of lord Anandapadmanabha. Apart from these there are many attractions in and around the beach including Children’s Park, Chacha Nehru Traffic Training Park, Amusement Park, Muthuchippy Park, and an Art Museum. Everything for an evening well spent is right here in the Shankumugham Beach.
