Muttom Beach – Unique and least explored among the Beaches of Tamil Nadu

The unique Muttom Beach view

Sundays are always an extraordinary for everyone, and so for me. We all loved to be with our family and in special occasions we make some instant trips to nearby places. One such weekend for me was the one third Sunday of July. Our decision to explore Muttom Beach was quick.

The clock showed 3 in the afternoon and we quickly planned a short trip to Muttom. Muttom is not a well explored place by tourists. However, this unexplored beach got its own space in Tamil Movies. A recent movie “Kadalora Kavithaigal” brought quite a lot of people to Muttom, but the beach is one of the least explored on the south-western coastal line of India.

Muttom beach hosts some pristine sand bed and standing rock cliffs. The rocks and the cliffs make it unique among the beaches of Tamil Nadu. Muttom stands different from other sea beaches due to its killing waves. The place though is excellent for a picnic or an evening walk, Muttom is not among my list for a swim or even a dip. The tall and standing rock cliffs are also attractive here, but my suggestion is to keep the climbing plans off from your mind as the rocks are extremely dangerous too.

Muttom has a fishing harbor too. The harbor was built by Dr. Jeppiar while the beach has a few small cottages and shades built by Tamil Nadu Tourism. There are also a lot many interesting places around Muttom including Kanyakumari and Thiruvananthapuram.
