Kollam Beach, Kollam

3.0
#2 of 8 in Parks in Kollam
Take in panoramic vistas of the Arabian Sea at Kollam Beach, where a large stretch of golden sand adjoins a park dedicated to Gandhi. Situated near the city's port--one of the oldest and most important in the international cashew trade--the beach also lies close to ruined Dutch and Portuguese forts, reminders of their periods of rule here. Keep your eyes peeled for the Chinese fishing nets, water pots, and sampan-like boats in use here. Take a stroll or horseback ride, but stay out of the water--bathing here is quite dangerous.

  • A good beach to spend your evening sunset in Kollam. Grab a bite with some street food. A kids park is just across too. Gets very crowded on weekends and holidays.  more »
  • We enjoyed walking along the beach, but it is primarily a place for the locals, and doesn't really cater for tourists. It has got lots of litter strewn around the sands, which is not uncommon in India...  more »

  • Beautiful beach...clean and good atmosphere........This beach is not safe for swimming and many has lost life...so the guards not allow swimming...There is a childrens park near by the beach... Good place to spend time with family and friends.
  • It is a clean and safe beach. Undercurrents are strong thus swimming away from the beach is not advisable. The overall atmosphere is great to spend your leisure time.
  • I went so many times to the beach One of the nice beach in Kollam district Swimming in the sea is not advisable Children can fly kites Along with visiting beach we can also go to the park nearby Parking space is available it is pay and use Private Bus services are also Available Small snacks shops are there Luxury hotels for tourists are also available
  • A good, clean and long beach, but not advisable for a bath. The sudden plunge in land making it dangerous. Still a wonderful place to spend an evening and view amazing sunset.But the beach is usually very crowded and thus not really a calm atmosphere. Worth a visit!!
  • Very beautiful beach for seeing.very large and good atmosphere. Attached park is also good. But expected swell dangerous .parking space is good
