It looks like Mollywood's actress-singer Ramya Nambeesan was on vacation in the spot recently, and she shared a couple of pretty pictures on her social media page with a #photodump hashtag.
Enjoying the blue lagoon in the background and relaxing at the Rocks Mornington, a famous seaside restaurant and cocktail bar located at Mornington's peak on the peninsula, the actress looks neck-deep in the vacation mood.
