Kovalam is a small village along the shore line of Kerala. This sleepy town suddenly came on the tourist map when its fabulous beaches were discovered by Holidayers. Today Kovalam has become one of the most popular beach holiday location in India. Kovalam means a grove of coconut trees and truly the coconut trees along the beaches gives it a ravishing look.
The palm-fringed bays in secluded coconut groves, promise a relaxed stay. The boundless blue waters of the Arabian Sea and miles of white sands washed away by the surf at the feet of the stalwart palms and the rocky promontories, makes this beach paradise. This marvellous beach is a tourist’s dream come true. It is a sheltered natural bay with cool, soothing palms and gentle waves.
Where when you are tired of aquatics, swimming or sunbathing, you can explore the handicrafts, jewellery and cloth shops spread along the waterfront. Not to speak of the delightful sea-food fare including lobsters available at the beach side restaurants.
The crescent-shaped beaches of Kovalam is divided in three parts. The middle beach is called Hawa where we are located. Each morning this beach acts as a base for the local fisherman. Kovalam can be reached by direct and regular bus services from Trivandrum International Airport and Railway Station.
