"Best beach location. Small and cozy. Good for small children."

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It has three to four small and cozy beaches. All within 1 km length and 5- 10 minutes walk. These are C shaped, separated by few rocks. Kovalam, Hawa, Light house, Grove and Vijinjham beaches. Two motorable roads from town descend on the main beaches, Hawa beach road and light house beach road after that it is paved foot path at the beach lined with resorts and hotels and restaurants with different other shops.

"Serene ambience"

  • Posted Oct 10, 2017
Serene ambience, filled with coconut trees makes you feel close to nature. Back water is so peaceful and house boat ride is icing on cake. Cheerful people with authentic cuisines. If nature is gift god to human then Kerala is abundance of treasure.

"Ultimate beach experience .. Probably best in india"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 7, 2017
I visited Kovalam in month of January of 2017 with frinds. November to February is the best time to visit.
Had an ultimate beach experience.
Place is clean quit.
Offers you all types of luxury too.
The beach and waters is probably best in india what I have seen.
Strickt police & coast gurd surveillance with shallow waters gives extrem feeling of safety.
The lighthouse beach is the main attraction.
Especially in morning & evening time the crowd is most.
All good hotels are at tbis beach.
No vehicles allowed on beach ... Hotel cart will welcome you in oarkings nearby.
Lit rally so much of cleainess and foreign clutre with a lot a lot(more than indian) visiters there make you confuse whether you in india or not.
The place is 1day by road feom cochine
And just 1/2hrs by road from trivendrum the nearest airport and city of famous swami padmanabham and a lot more attractions
Its 4hrs by road from Kanyakumari.
The town is peaceful ... People are friendly ... Sea food and south indian food awesome
Just don't do shoo ping here I found it costlier.
And food at beach places is much costly but have typicall western outlook thing to bbe experienced once.

"Holiday beach"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Mar 9, 2017
Went there in march with family and mostly that time foreign tourists are there and few newly married couples. Maximum two days are sufficient to enjoy. Hotels at light house beach are very poor of standard and very costly for food and shopping. Also ola and uber not plying there from Trivandrum.
You can stay at Trivandrum for best economical hotel which is 14 km away but have good hotels.
