Kollam Beach, Kollam

(1.9/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Kollam vacation trip planner makes visiting Kollam Beach and other Kollam attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
