Kovalam, Kerala

Been there recently?

Three beautiful crescent-shaped beaches in Kovalam—Hawa Beach, Lighthouse Beach, and Samudra Beach—combine to form the 17 km long Kovalam Beach. It has palm groves lined along its white, sandy shores. Known for temples and sunsets, it is one of the must-visit places in Kerala that offers enchanting views of the ocean.

The clear stretches of sand and aquamarine waters are ideal for a relaxing vacation. The state authorities have made sure that Kovalam has a variety of recreational options, including swimming pools, Ayurvedic massage centres, herbal body-toning massages and health resorts, affordable cottages, shopping, convention zones, and yoga centres in order to cater to the large number of tourists it receives from both India and abroad. Here, unique cultural events like dance performances and concerts that highlight Kerala’s heritage are also organised.
