The main attraction of course was Kovalam beach, which is around 18kms from Trivandrum city. 'Kovalam' means a grove of coconut trees and true to its name the village offers an endless sight of coconut trees.
After spending the entire day visiting place inside the city, the last thought for me was to get some nice sea breeze.Kovalam beach was a perfect place. The evening time was a treat to every traveler.It was rocking place. As my phone's battery was about to die, I have to reduce my time to spend in kovalam somehow managed to spend almost an hour there.
The Food i take after make myself free from Light house..
Kovalam, TrivandrumLight House Beach/Kovalam BeachThis place is 16 km away from alleppey and is an international beach. It is named after the 30 meter high Light house here which is the most important feature of this beach.The Beach is very clean and there are many small restaurants around this area which would be definitely liked by sea food admirers. while visiting this place you don't have to be concerned about living and food facilities.

The beauty of Kerala lies in this place. From flora, fauna to crystal clear waters. This beach is the top tourist destination in South India.
Amazing place, weather and people. Unity in diversity.
Kovalam beach is a favourite with tourists for swimming in the sea. There are coast guards around who keep a watchful eye. The beach is advertised as 'jelly fish Free' on the various travel sites. So it was a surprise to find large number of purple jellyfish being washed onto the shore by the waves. The coast guards assured us they are dead and harmless. The fishermen throw them out when they get caught in their nets. It seems there is a migration of jelly fish for about a fortnight in October, when the sea gets foamy with the gelatine in the jelly fish. Kovalam beach never fails to arouse curiosity!
I love beaches. I woke up early and went for jogging. It was really refreshing- Fresh air; out of the city; amazing feeling. We did all type of activities which were available. Now it was 12 noon. I had already booked a car for the up comings because I didn’t want any more hassles and discomfort in my Journey. We left Kovalam around 6pm. Next stop was Cochin (245km – 4 to 5 hrs). Reached Cochin late night. Again same problem as it was in Trivandrum. But here somehow we managed to find a good hotel.
Finally, I rested my bike on the bay of a rocky promontory. The beach, and its crescents painted on the canvas of the Arabian Sea waves. This calm retreat was a perfect end to my trip. From sunbathing at noon to Catamaran-cruising under the clear starlit sky, life didn’t seem to cease at a single wasted moment on this beach. I had thought of staying for just a night, but the tapering end of my trip got extended to a weeklong Yoga retreat, which I enjoyed as the waves hit the porch of my rented beach house. I could never get enough of my adventurous saga, yet I had to reconsider my pocket and start my journey back home. However, I realized who I actually was during my journey of finding my granddad's essence; sitting on the very same bike that he had, about 50 years back, and lying back on the sands, close to the sea, I saw his reflection within me!
