Vailankkani is the Holy city of 'Our Lady of Good Health'. Mother Mary had appeared to a milk boy nearly 500 years ago and the small town is noted for the beautiful churches.
It is noted for the Basilica. There is a beach nearby. Lots of small hotels on the beach serving good fried fish of various types. Beware of shopping in the beach area. Shopkeepers are arrogant. Conveniences are lacking in the area.
