A beach town in southern India, Kovalam is home to spectacular and pristine looking beaches. The idyllic village features three main beaches among which Lighthouse Beach is the most popular and the largest. The three beaches namely, the Lighthouse beach, Samudra beach, and Hawa beach are connected together and they together form a rocky crescent. The beach is named after the 30-metre lighthouse that rests at this place. Kovalam means a ‘grove of coconut trees’ and the village does complete justification to its title as it is filled with coconut palms.
The small little village is famous for the Kovalam tourism packages that it offers. The options to spend your days are plenty. Travellers usually enjoy fun activities like surfing in the low tidal waves, sun bathing, swimming, and motorboat riding. The tropical sun is great that you would see your skin turn a shade of cobalt within a few minutes. An additional option to spend your time at Kovalam includes Ayurvedic treatments along with yoga.
If you are here on Kovalam honeymoon tour packages, you would want to stroll through a less crowded beach. Rather than opting for Lighthouse beach go to Samudra beach which is covered with coconut trees, and great views. Kovalam tour packages rose to fame with the hippie epoch that happened in the early seventies. The place has regular visitors from both Israel and Europe.
We recommend that you experience the night life on the beach. Accommodation facilities are made available on the beach in the form of resorts and cottages which are available both in five stars and budget quality. The resorts usually feature swimming pools, convention facilities, massage centres, and shopping zones. If you are tired of enjoying the beach life, you could pay a visit to the capital city of Kerala – Thiruvanathapuram. However, it is better to stay at Kovalam and travel to Thiruvananthapuram when necessary. The capital city features a lot of sightseeing offers including Napier Museum, Sri Chitra Art Gallery, and the Padmanabhaswamy Temple.
The nearest railway station is at Thiruvananthapuram which is about 16 kilometres away from Kovalam. The best time to visit this Kovalam is during the month of September through March. The German bakery located at the Lighthouse beach is known for the delicious breakfast menu. Travellers could enjoy the evening or morning with your friends here munching on a plate of pancakes, and a cup of shake.
