Great views from top. There is lift inside for convenience. Must visit place! There is a steep staircase in the end which is tough for elderly.

off the 36 light houses in the state of kerala, this is at number 13 in terms of its length. Nice view of Kovalam beach from this light house. Closed on Mondays and between 1 to 2 pm.

It is a normal lighthouse. But children from urban area will love to watch it and would be more interested to know the purpose behind lighthouses.

Worth visiting just 2 km away from Kovalam beach, has an elevator but also has steep stair to climb the last floor. Excellent scenic view of sea , town, and harbour. Make a point to visit before 6 pm.

The view of Light house is great as it is surrounded by huge arabian sea. There is also a Bollard Pull testing facility for 500 tonnes capacity.
