Samudra Beach, Kovalam

3.4
#4 of 14 in Things to do in Kovalam
Enjoy the serenity and soothing atmosphere of the picturesque Samudra Beach. Lush hills skirt the beach, which dazzles with its fine, dark sand and sweeping views over the water. Enjoy the feeling of the large waves crashing against your body, although bear in mind that they can be a bit too strong for a pleasant swim. Find shade under the tall palm trees as you appreciate the beach, which serves primarily as a spot for local fishermen. Refresh with a drink and dinner at one of the restaurants lining the beach, while gazing at a spectacular sunset.
