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.

Kovalam Beach reviews
Beautiful beach. You can take a bath too and most importantly there is a changing room in the parking which is very close to the beach. You'll be charged only ₹20 for the same. North Indians can... more »
The beach was neat and clean. But we visited there when Covid protocol was in place. We loved the place and we will definitely get back again during better times more »
The beach is small but beautiful, not very crowded and the restaurants are good on the beach. The light house tower on one side adds to the beauty of the beach. It has rocks on both sides of the beach which looks beautiful. One can enjoy sunset from here. Overall I would recommend a stay at this beach along with family also. This is a nice place for Newly wed couples as well.
A great place to relax and have fun. If you are in a mood to enjoy the breeze and wishes to be peaceful i recommend going not to the main beach but to the other beach on the right side. Main beach is usually crowded with people that some of you may not be able to enjoy the beach, for those people i recommend the latter one.
