“OK for an evening walk.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 15 June 2015 NEW
Kollam beach is about a km from the Kollam Railway Station. It is a 2 km long stretch of brown sand, but not very clean. There is a children's park adjacent to the beach which has a giant white statue of a mermaid.
Swimming is prohibited on the beach because of the dangerous undercurrents, and a few people are said to have drowned in the sea here.
There are a number of snack food stalls lining the beach and the local people and tourists generally come to this beach in the evenings for a snack, a stroll or to enjoy a beautiful view of the sunset. Children can enjoy an outing in the nearby park. There is ample parking space for vehicles adjacent to the beach and rickshaws are also easily available.
The Thangassery Lighthouse is just barely visible about 2 km north of Kollam Beach.
