I spent some time going into the waters and the waves seemed a bit different here. Upon examining for sometime I could see the waves were coming from two different sides and meeting each other in the middle. Not bigger waves but it seemed as if two oceans were meeting and dancing around at the same place and turns out that was true. Dhanushkodi beach is the place where Bay of Bengal merges with Indian Ocean. There is a reference to mythology at this place and is believed to be where Lord Rama and his army built Ram Setu, otherwise known as Adam's Bridge across the sea connecting Rameshwaram Island (Tamil Nadu) and Mannar Island (Sri Lanka), to rescue his wife Sita from the clutches of the demon king Ravana. No, its not possible to see Sri Lanka from Dhanushkodi if that's what you are thinking about. Its about 18 Kms from the Dhanushkodi Beach.
