Kovalam Beach



Along the long coast of Kerala in India lies the Kovalam Beach. Located at about 10 Kilometers from the capital of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, the fishing village of Kovalam is on of the most popular vacation spot for both Indian and international tourists. The small village of Kovalam on the Malabar Coast was relatively secluded until its virgin beaches were discovered. Today, Kovalam beach is a very prominent location on the tourist map. The grove of coconut trees on the beach justifies the name Kovalam, or the Coconut grove.

Kovalam Beach, today, is one of the most visited beaches in India and tourists from all over the world come to enjoy its sandy beaches and tranquil waters. The Kovalam Beach can be divided into three separate parts. The Southern most part is called the Lighthouse Beach and is the most popular one among the three. The Hawah Beach is the one located in the center and is the main beach of the fishermen.

Every morning hundreds of local fishermen begin there journey into the sea from here. The Samudra Beach is the Northern most Beach. The Samudra Beach has withstood the test of changing times and is still dotted with wooden fishing vessels.

Reaching the Kovalam Beach is easy as it is at a reasonable distance from Trivandrum. The Trivandrum International Airport has flights from different parts of India as well as the world. The Railhead of Trivandrum Central and the Trivandrum Central Bus Station are both approximately 14 Kilometers away from the Kovalam Beach.
