Hawa Beach, Kovalam

(3.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our world travel planner, Kovalam attractions like Hawa Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It is beautiful. Kovalam has perhaps the best sand underfoot and the water waves are gentle as they come in.  more »
  • A great beach with lovely views of fishermen at work and sunset over the Arabian sea. Some good shops too.  more »
  • This beach is mainly used by the locals, lacking in charm, but you can get a speed boat ride. Has some unbrellas and sun beds.  more »
