See why Tamil Nadu is so loved by by international and local tourists alike, by renting a vehicle and setting off to explore the many scenic and cultural attractions surrounding Panagudi. Kanyakumari, is 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the north. Here you can see the Gandhi Mandapam and Kumari Amman Temple.
Organise your transportation and visit Thiruvananthapuram, a transport and retail hub for the area, located about 45 miles (72 kilometers) away from Panagudi. This bigger city offers plenty of visitor attractions, such as Padmanabhaswami Temple, Trivandrum Secretariat and Technopark. Make sure you don't rush back to Panagudi until you've visited Thiruvananthapuram's Shri Padmanabhaswamy Temple, Thiruvananthapuram Zoo and Lighthouse Beach.
Houses of the holy are often the perfect portals into a region's spiritual traditions. The temples around Panagudi are no exception. If you want to stay indoors, make a beeline for Tamil Nadu's excellent palaces and history museums. These are good places to learn about the local culture and perhaps find a unique memento.
If you are after something a little different from seeing the sights, why not indulge in the local watersports? Boating and surfing are available within the region.
When it's finally time to bid goodbye to Panagudi, head to the nearest major airport situated in Thiruvananthapuram, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the west.
