Kovalam Beach, Kovalam
(3.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Kovalam Beach represents a crescent-shaped shoreline that has attracted Europeans since the 1930s. A rocky promontory has created a secluded bay, famous for its calm sea and water sports. Swim, sunbathe, or treat your body to an herbal massage. Many facilities like swimming pools, shopping zones, and yoga centers surround the beach. If you want to learn something about the native culture, visit the local museum, art gallery, or temple. Wear sufficient sunscreen, because the sun can be intense here. Use our Kovalam itinerary planner to add Kovalam Beach and other attractions to your Kovalam vacation plans.

  • a good beach but little black sand at places, with some water sports, enjoyed the scuba diving basic level upto 5 meters
