Kovalam Beach represents a crescent-shaped shoreline that has attracted Europeans since the 1930s. A rocky promontory has created a secluded bay, famous for its calm sea and water sports. Swim, sunbathe, or treat your body to an herbal massage. Many facilities like swimming pools, shopping zones, and yoga centers surround the beach. If you want to learn something about the native culture, visit the local museum, art gallery, or temple. Wear sufficient sunscreen, because the sun can be intense here.

Very crowded but pretty beach, just north of Lighthouse Beach. There are shops with inexpensive clothing and trinkets...lots of haggling. A bit rundown. I wouldn't feel safe roaming around here... more »
