Sothavilai Beach – Nagercoil – Part 2

The next evening at Nagercoil we spent at Chothavilai or Sothavilai Beach which is about 12-13 kms from Vadasery.  We took a bus from Vadasery to Anna Bus Stand and from there we took another bus to the beach.  There are two bus stands here at Nagercoil.  One is Anna Bus stand for travels in and around Nagercoil-Kanyakumari and other is Vadasery Bus Stand for travelling to other parts of Tamilnadu. Most of the local buses are private owned called Mini-buses and the bus fares are all uniform as it is regularized by the local authority. (Read Part-1)


We placed ourselves on the seats at the end of the bus for which we later regretted.  We had the Roller Coaster experience as the bus was running on the uneven roads. It passed through many narrowed left and right turns finally left us at shore of Indian Ocean.

The beach stretches over 4 kms.  It is one of the beaches in the Kanyakumari district.  The sand on the shore is very clean and soft.  It is one of the Tsunami affected areas in the year 2004 when it hit Southern parts of Tamilnadu, India.


When we visited, we could see only a few families, some couples and a few groups of friends.  The beach looked very calm.  Since we went in the evening we could see the Sun setting, is the other place after Kanyakumari where you can see the Sunset.   That evening was so pleasant with cool breeze in the hot summer.  Since the beach is so interior you can’t stay for long in the late evening.   You have to move before it is dark.  You can enjoy the beautiful atmosphere here.
