Thangassery lighthouse is a hidden gem. The view from the top of the breakwater and small fishing harbor is awesome. The fishing boats here are very colorful and so are the houses we see from here. There is a lift that take you most of the way up, but if you don't need one I would recommend walking up the steps and spending time at the windows. We found the caretaker Suresh very helpful. The red and white donned lighthouse is a signature of Thagasheri and is a must visit if you are in the area.

The experience may not be good if the place is crowded, plan accordingly!.

Mesmerized by the beauty of kollam in 135 feet tall lighthouse builed by British in 1902. Lift is available up to 6th floor and 30 steps to climb stiffed and narrow steps. We have enjoyed our trip. God's Own Country

We travelled 20 Km to see 5he light house, no one has mentioned in the reviews that it is closed during Covid.
So please don't waste your time in traveling and if you want to go, take confirmation from govt authorities or someone you know. For us it was quite a waste of time, thats why I thought of putting this review so that I can bring awareness to others, who are planning to visit!

well a very beautiful place to visit. there is a lift to reach just below the top. then you have to climb two flight of stairs. the view is breathtaking. go in the evening to avoid the harsh sun. the breakwater is an excellent place for a really long walk. you may see lot of mongoose roaming around. some beautiful graffiti adorn the rocks on the breakwater.
take lot of water and snacks with you.

A lift is available to take you close to the top, from where there are two flights of stairs to reach the balcony of the lighthouse. The view from the top is superb. The lighthouse and premises are well kept (you need to keep your footwear outside). Kudos to the authorities for that. Parking facility is available for free. Entry fee is Rs.20 per person and there is nominal fee of Rs 10 if you want to take pictures with your mobile.
