Climb up the red-and-white-striped Vizhinjam Lighthouse for a spectacular view of the Kovalam area. Built in 1972, the lighthouse stands 36 m (118 ft) tall and offers a 360 degree view. The narrow spiral stairs can take the wind out of you, but once you reach the top, you'll be glad you made the effort. See a beautiful coastline of white sand, swaying palm trees, and colorful sunshades from a bird's-eye perspective. Let the cold ocean breeze refresh you as you enjoy the sight of waves crashing over rocks and the horizon spreading to infinity.

  • The lighthouse is in great condition and can be viewed inside. there are many steps and last ladder is difficult to climb for small kids and elders. The view from the top is amazing and worth all the efforts to climb the steps! Kids under 5 are not allowed to go up on the top!
  • There is an elevator for 2 floor. Be prepared to walk first floor and steep steps at the top. But great view!! Worth the climb. Closes at 6 pm. There is lunch break too. Ask for senior citizen discount if applicable to you.
