Kovalam Beach

Kovalam BeachClose to Thiruvanthapuram (Trivandrum), the capital of Kerala, lies the pristine beach of Kovalam. This beach resort of Kerala is very popular with the domestic as well as international tourists due to its natural beauty. Originally this was a small fishing village with practically very little or no industrial activity of its own. Kovalam actually consists of three successive crescent beaches - the southernmost known as the Lighthouse beach, the Middle beach and the Third beach north of the Ashok Radission Resort.

A extensive rocky elevation on the beach has created a beautiful bay of calm waters ideal for sea bathing. The leisure options at this beach are plenty and diverse. Apart from engaging in diverse water sport activities, you can also indulge in herbal body toning massages, special cultural programmes, Catamaran cruising etc. Life on the beach begins late in the day and carries on well into the night.

Beach Activities -
The beaches are generally safe and clean. There are life guard patrols on the beach, but you still need to be careful when swimming. Besides swimming and sunbathing, the natural bay is ideal for kayaking, surfing, sailing, yatching, skiing, scuba diving and windsurfing. Snorkeling in such a wonderful tract of nature gives an unparalleled high. Surfboards and boogie boards can be hired on the Kovalam beach. Marine Angling for deep-sea fishing is also available at the beach. The speed lovers can participate in the exhilarating sport of parasailing.

Kovalam BeachSightseeing at Kovalam -
The towering promontory of rock dominating Kovalam beach and looking over a clear bay of blue water is a feature that is unique on the 600 km coastline of Kerala. A stretch of sparkling golden sand 100 m from the sea along the coastline with a few coral reefs further away is a natural marvel.

Thiruvananthapuram ( Trivandrum ), the capital city of Kerala, is just 16 km away from Kovalam and getting there is very easy. Thiruvananthapuram has interesting places to see like the Napier Museum, the Sri Chitra Art Gallery , the Padmanabhaswamy Temple , Puthenmalike Palace, Zoo, Planetarium, Veli Lagoon, Ponmudi hill station etc. SMSM Institute, a State owned handicrafts emporium, is the ideal place to pick up ethnic curios and other articles.

Best Season to Visit : Though Kovalam is open through out the year, September to March is the best time to visit.
