Vattakotai means 'circular fort' in Tamil. A less known destination, few kilometers away from the city centre. It does offer a amazing panoramic view of the sea from the fort. It is the place where you would love to spend a calm evening.

"Around 5 kilometers from Kanyakumari beach, this is a must visit place for tourists. You can see the southern part of Western Ghats (probably where it ends) from here. The fort is expanding towards the sea giving a great view. Also, one can see the wind fields and the Kudamkulam nuclear plant in the distance from here. "
