Kanyakumari beach is a beautiful sight with various colored sand. It does not really offer one the opportunity to sunbathe on soft golden sands, or to frolic in the waves as the seashore is rocky and dangerous, and there is a man made wall running along it. People are warned to stay off the rocks, and if someone moves out of the bounds he or she is quickly and severely admonished by a watchful policeman. The beach offers a welcome change with longs stretches of sands of many hues. The sea is entertaining to watch it beat itself against the rocks and then subside, before it gathers itself up for another attack as it is fairly rough.
