Kovalam Beach, Kovalam

3.4
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.

  • This is a good beach. But security and safety arrangements are very poor here. If you are having family with teenaged girls then you can not enjoy the beach.  more »
  • We can not swim the beach is monitored and they prevent us from going more than 10 m in the water we do that dip
