Kovalam Beach

Kovalam, a small town located on the Malabar Coast of Kerala, is one of the most popular beaches in India. Literally meaning , A grove of coconut trees", it is truly an apt name for this beach. The numerous coconut trees along this beach gives it a stunning look and the palm-fringed bays in secluded coconut groves, promise a relaxed stay to it visitors. The blue waters of the Arabian Sea and stretches of white sands, makes this beach a paradise for nature lovers.

The crescent shaped beaches of Kovalam can be divided into three parts. The most popular beach is the Lighthouse Beach, which is the southernmost beach of Kovalam. The beach in the middle of Kovalam, Hawah acts as a base for the local fisherman each morning. The northern most beach is called Samudra and is dotted with few rudimentary wooden fishing vessels.

Kovalam is also an ideal beach for enjoying water sports such as kayaking, swimming, surfing and skiing. The people who would rather like to relax can opt for a leisurely stroll on the beach, a sunbath or can shop for handicrafts, jewellery and cloth from the shops that are lined up on the beach.

The evening transforms the quiet atmosphere of the place in to a lively cultural show. The tourists can view Kathakali performances, which are the classical dance-drama of Kerala. Last but not the least, a trip to Kovalam cannot be completed without tasting the delightful seafood including the lobsters that are available at the beachside restaurants.
