Very different beach, waves are huge... swimming not advised, lots of shops on wagons, cleanliness questionable. Could be a lot more cleaner. Police on standby in the area which is a good sign.

The Shanghumukham beach in Trivandrum is very close to the airport. The large stretches of white sand away from the hustle and bustle of the city gives a soothing and calming atmosphere.

Beach is more or less well maintained. It is also having sitting facility. Evenings are spectacular to watch the sunset and the waves.

Udaya suites is nearer to the Airport. I would also recommend Hotel Highland or any other good hotels in Thampanoor area. Local food easily available. Use taxi or Auto to commute.
