Red sands and blue sea draw visitors to Shanghumukham Beach, where you can play sports or sit in a starfish-shaped cafe watching the sun cast its rays over the water. A sculpture of Jalakanyaka, a 35 m (115 ft) long mermaid reposing in a giant shell, attracts kids and adults alike. Very active in the evening, this popular spot can also get very crowded on weekends, so come early if you wish to take advantage of onsite parking.

  • A nice beach to hangout with friends and family in the evening. You can spent the entire evening in the beach enjoying the sea and have good food from the small stalls there. The evening vibe here is awesome.
  • Its an excellent, peaceful and serene place to be in the evening. Sunset view is awesome. Though it all depends on your luck whether the sun sets on the horizon or much before that in the cloudy sky.
