Kovalam

Located near the heritage city of Thiruvananthapuram, Kovalam is an amazing beach attracting tourists from the different parts of the world. This amazing beach is located at a distance of sixteen km from this wonderful city. The groves of coconuts are amazing and they wave because of the strong winds flowing in the region. Famous for the beautiful resorts with the lush ayurveda facilities and the sea adventure, Kovalam has attained the status of global destination. The three prime beaches in Kovalam are Lighthouse beach, Samudra beach and Hawa beach. Kovalam is the first beach spot in India where topless bathing started but in the present times, this activity is stopped.

From here, one can also visit the sea port of Vizhinjam. There is much to see here including variety of fishes, mosques, churches and the Hindu temples of old origin. The hippies had dominance on the beach area in the past decades and in the present times one will love to interact with the tourists from Israel and Europe here. Enjoy the various rejuvenation therapies of ayurveda and the tasty sea food of Kerala cooked in a traditional way in the fine coconut oil and authentic spices.
