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.

    Small beach at the the Leela Kovalam where hotel also has a small part only for hotel guests. Because the fishing daily with boats until noon come to the bath not well suited to noon the beach is but completely cleaned. But to the discover and experience worth seeing what the fishermen have. Beautiful bathing is 500 m further in the next kl. Bay.
