Talking about Kovalam what makes this beach unique is its creacent shape and the lighthouses. Located appx 20 Kms from Trivandrum this is one of the most popualar beach spot in kerela. At no other place in India you can see such a mesmirising sunset standing on the top of the Lighthouse. It is the best spot for photography as well as you can capture the entire crescent view.
NOTE: Towards the end of Nov there is Film Festival also.
