Kovalam is a little beach front town in the southern Indian territory of Kerala, south of Thiruvananthapuram. At the southern end of Lighthouse Beach is a striped lighthouse with a viewing platform for sightseeing.
The Kovalum Beach is easily accessible by different vehicles as the visitors have to walk just for a small distance to the breathtaking sandy beach. The waves crashing to the rocky cliff side on one side, the guiding light house on the other and the slowly rising water trying to reach for your feet as the sunset adds to beauty of the sunset it self. The beauty is hard to describe alone and is to be experienced. the beach is lined by different stores where varieties of products from precious stones, clothing, and carved masterpieces are put on display for sale and along side different restaurants serving fresh seafood that they prepare at your choice. the set up of the whole is just perfect for a nice evening meal with the view and sound of the waves coming ashore.
The beach is just 15 kms from the Trivandrum International Airport and 14.3 kms from the Trivandrum Central Railway Station.
For stays the options are several, to name some are The Lost Hostel, Hotel Sunrise by Cave, Cosmic Holiday Inn, New Kovalam Beach Hotel, Ganesh House Family Club.
Have to say "worth spending the evening basking in the sunset at Kovalum Beach". just
