The famous beach at Muttom is located about 16km from Nagercoil and 32km from Kanyakumari Beach Tourism. Muttom is famous for its beautiful landscaping and high rocks dipping into the sea at the beach side. The sun set view point at Muttom is one of the most panoramic view points in the district. Another attraction of Muttom is the century old light house built by the British. However, so far this beautiful beach has always been unsafe for the tourists since the rocks on which tourists go to see the sea view are slippery and a number of fatal accidents have occurred over the past few years. Protective stainless steel fencing is established across the entire dangerous areas.

Colachel Beach is a natural harbor. The depth of the water is estimated to be nearly 20 ft. Since ancient days, ships visit this port regularly for transporting materials pertaing to trade and other international transactions. Even sea voyagers embarked on their journey to countries through this harbor. Huge project is being prepared by the govt. to employ this port for higher utility and greater benefits in the form of international port at Enayam near Colachel. The Colachel port is also serving as an important fishing harbor. Serene View of Sunset can be watched at Colachel Beach. In the event of the recent move for establishing a full-fledged international port at Enayam, the aforesaid Colachel Beach and its premises which are ideally suited for converting in to eco tourism may be considered for giving livelihood security to the local inhabitants.
