Famous for the groves of coconut trees from which it takes its name, Kovalam offers a long, white sandy beach on the Arabian Sea. Most visitors use the town as a spot to swim and surf, or climb the 35 m (115 ft) tall lighthouse to get views over the town and the ocean. Once a popular spot for hippies, the town nowadays features a number of ayurvedic salons and yoga schools. With hotels and restaurants lined up along the shore, there are enough amenities to make for a relaxing vacation in Kovalam, although many visitors to the town come just for a one-day trip.
