Residents of the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram swear by the vibe and atmosphere at the Shankhumugham Beach. Some come here to view sunsets, while others drop by during the day to simply relax, with a majestic view and a calming breeze playing perfect hosts. Its rustic charm is enhanced by the fishermen thronging the place, along with a bunch of delightful vantage points which seem to have been specifically created for picnickers. For company, you have the matsya kanyaka sculpture (a gigantic, 35 m long mermaid structure), among the most unique constructions in the entire State and a special Indoor Recreation Centre and a beautiful Children’s Park.
