One of the best light house in Kerala. Less crowded. Recommended for family visits. Elevator is available for all.

My visit to the lighthouse evokes a lot of nostalgia. The view from above is picturesque. Memories of mount Carmel school. The best part is the elevator which makes it accessible to old and young alike. Please do remember that Monday is a holiday here.
