One of the rare places in and around Rameshwaram where you will find a clean beach. Not far away from SL. Your mobile may switch to international roaming here.
Drive to the place is a bliss. Abandoned town adds to the appeal.

Great to be on a strip with sea on all sides. There are ruins of an old city you can see here, which is beautiful. You can see floating rocks in a temple: Its really heavy but still floats on water!! To go to the end of the road though, you need government permission.

20 kms from Rameshwaram, Dhanushkodi is a strip of land which has Indian Ocean to it's right and Bay of Bengal to it's left.
This place was destroyed by flood in 1964. It's not a habitable place. However, for natural beauty lovers, the turbulent Indian Ocean and the contrasting serene back Waters of Bay of Bengal side by side makes it a beautiful watch.
At the tip of Dhanushkodi, the two waterbodies merge and no is allowed to touch the tip of the strip of land since it's said to be highly dangerous.
One can also visit a temple (name forgotten) in Rameshwaram where the floating rocks will be given as prasadam as a token for giving donation.(I brought one)
Dhanushkodi can be reached either by public transport or private car and Sri Lanka is just 29kms away. There's a light house, which is used as a vigilance for any suspicious vessels/ scrupulous exchanges between China & Sri Lanka.
There are small shops in the dilapidated structures which sells various decorative items, pendents, pen stands made of sea shells, various other sea shell products.
Sit on the fine sand near the shore and delve into the depth of your thoughts, not ocean.
