"Besides the great history of Thiruvalluvar and his 133 feet statue, just visit this place for the boat ride experience. Just wow! Riding against the wave on the journey towards the statue is awesome. The boat often jumps over the waves and that experience itself is so thrilling and memorable. A must visit place in Kanyakumari."
