Kovalam Beach


A sheltered natural bay with cool soothing palms and gentle waves - that's Kovalam Beach for you. Located just 10 kms from the capital of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, along the Malabar Coast in the small village of Kovalam, the Kovalam Beach is the foremost tourist attraction of the region.

True to its name, which means a grove of coconut trees, the palm fringed bays of Kovalam Beach, awash with the blue waters of the Arabian Sea and endless stretches of white sands seems a fair representation of heaven in God's own country - Kerala.

The Kovalam Beach actually consists of three beaches - the Lighthouse Beach, the Hawah Beach and the Samudra beach. The Lighthouse Beach is the favorite haunt of the tourists and is named so after a lighthouse that is located on the south end outcrop of the beach from where you can witness the splendid view of the sea and the nearby Vizhinjam Mosque. If you stroll around the Hawah beach, you will see the local fishermen setting out on their boats during your Kovalam Beach Tours with A Journey to India. If you are looking for peace and serenity, try the Samudra Beach, which is ideal for relaxing and sunbathing.

Feel the cool sea breeze blowing through your hair and the rhythmic waves rolling caress your bare feet as you bask in the glorious sunshine of a tropical paradise during your tour of Kovalam Beach with us. Indulge in aquatics, swimming or sunbathing as you gorge on scrumptious seafood such as lobsters and prawns and watch classic Kathakali performances in the picturesque environs of the Kovalam Beach.
