Hawa Beach, Kovalam

3.4
#3 of 14 in Things to do in Kovalam
At Hawa Beach, relax under the palm groves and take a swim in the warm Arabian Sea. Every morning the beach becomes a meeting place for hearty native fishers whose lives depend on the sea's bounty. Resorts equipped with necessary facilities for water sport activities and charming local restaurants concentrate along the shoreline. Visit the massage parlors for affordable herbal treatments and enjoy the breeze under the umbrella's shade. The strong sea currents can pose a risk during swimming, so exercise caution. Be sure you're appropriately dressed when you pass a nearby mosque. Work out when and for how long to visit Hawa Beach and other Kovalam attractions using our handy Kovalam day trip planning app .
