Kovalam’s beaches are a popular destination, yet still maintain an air of calm. There are a series of bays to choose from, so you’re sure to find a spot to yourself. Here you can relax on the warm palm-fringed sands, or wander along the headland.
We really love the old lighthouse, where you can climb up to the top and watch glorious sunsets over the Arabian Sea.
