Well maintained and must visit place in Trivandrum. You will get a bird's eye view of the kovalam and vizhinjam coastline. The light house compound has parking space, toilets and a cafeteria. We went at 12 noon and were worried that we would be fried under the Sun. However, once you are at the top you won't feel the heat as the wind is so strong and cool. The lighthouse has a lift till the second floor. However, you have to climb two more floors, the final one being a bit steep and so the elderly may face difficulties in climbing the final steep ladder. The view from the top is amazing. The light house compound also has a children's play ground which was not well maintained at the time of visit. The ticket rates are cheap. Two adults plus a still camera costed only Rs. 70/-.  You have to remove your footwear before entering the lighthouse. There is a place to deposit your footwear. There is ample parking space too.

It's a good place to spend a peaceful evening. 45mnts drive from TVM city and you can give some nature therapy to your mind.

This tall structure is standing invitation for people to reach to the top.

It is difficult for elderly persons, particularly those with knee problem, to climb the ladders, after the lift takes you upto certain level.

A lift is available to take visitors up a few floors from where you have to climb a ladder to reach the top. The view from here is excellent. You can see the see fishing harbour, the masjid, the church and the Kovalam beach. The lighthouse compound is kept clean. Parking is an issue as the road leading to the lighthouse is narrow. So, you need to park at some distance

This lighthouse stamnds out on the Kovalam beach and adds to its beauty, specially at night when its light circles the beach area and coloured lights flash till far. Climbing the steps could be a bit tiring but the view from top makes up for it. Must visit.

A must visit to people who love heights with attractive view of beach. It's a nice climb up the light house through steps or if you don't want to climb there is lift facility available. Enough parking facility with a small children's park makes the place a good place to visit for every age.
