Located upon the Kurumkal hill top at the southern end of the beach, the Vizhinjam Lighthouse is a rather remarkable candy striped sight to behold. Poovar Island Resort is a perfect 3 Star hotel in Kerala to seek accommodation in if looking for a suitable Kerala resort to spend your vacations at while exploring the area. Built in the year 1925, the lighthouse was originally built with a lighted beacon which had been effectively modified in the year 1966 into one with a day mark beacon in 1966. At an altitude of 57 metres from sea level, once on top, you are offered endless views of the sparkling Arabian sea and the canopy of jade green coconut trees. The lighthouse is open to visitors between 3-6 PM and a winding staircase takes you to the top.
