On the first day of our visit to Trivandrum (now Tiruvananthapurum), we visited Shanmuga Beach. We checked into Vivanta by Taj, Kovalam at around 11 AM. Taj had provided to pick us up from the Airport for our flight from Bangalore to Trivandrum. After having lunch, we took a car from the hotel to first go to Puttina Malaga Palace. From there, we went to Shanmuga Beach.

Shanmuga Beach is very close to the Trivandrum Airport. In fact, one of the Airport walls is adjacent to the beach. There is a huge building right on the beach with all shops and facilities.


The beach has red sand. The sea is Arabian Sea. The water is slightly greenish. The sea is crystal clear.

We spend about 2 hours on the beach. It was very enjoyable.

There are some activities on the beach as well.


Deepshree was the one who enjoyed the most.


Am basically a programmer. Have proved to myself and quite a few people over the 24+ years that I am capable of programming on most platforms using quite a few tools for most problems. However, to be viable for earning a living, have learnt a few tricks and techniques of management. Whatever management techniques I have learnt, I try and convert to simple logic flows to keep my decision process simple and transparent. While managing, have been successful in programming a few individuals and teams to meet required objectives. Though I am not creative, I have enormous potential to innovate and extend creative ideas generated and shared by others.
