"Great enjoyment during holidays"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This location is curved land surrounding arabian sea. Hence the waves were less comparatively with other location. It is nice to take Bath in this location. Its a great pleasure to take Bath and enjoy your holidays. You can go to diving with snorkeling will give more adventurous joy.

"Kovalam Experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is one of the most beautiful places to see. The people are friendly and warm and nice. The sea food is good and not too expensive. The backwater cruise for 2-3 hours is a must. The golden sand beach is quiet and does not have too many people. You can have lunch in one of the floating restaurants.

"One of the best beach"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 14, 2018
This is the best beach in india according to me. It consists of shops, and restaurant along the coastal line. There are many restaurant which gives you amazing view but they are costly. It is famous attraction of tourist attraction. Beach is very beautiful.

"Overhead beach destination banking on past glory"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Jan 4, 2018
This is a must-visit destination on the regular tourist circuit but sadly it does not live up to the hype. The roads to Kovalam are bad though the place itself is hyped, commercialized and crowded, not to mention the dirty & stinking beaches. It appears that the famed golden/clean sands of Kovalam are a thing of past. There are better and relatively unsung beaches, in North Kerala for example. Shopping & dining at the Lighthouse beach is open late into the evening. Bathing is not a very enjoyable experience (especially after the Bath) due to the dirty & fine/muddy sand.

"Overhead beach destination, there are better ones"

  • 3.0/7
  • Posted Jan 4, 2018
The place doesn't live up to it's hype and is banking on it's past glory. The sands are dirty & stinking. There are better (read cleaner) and relatively unsung beaches even within Kerala like the Kannur beaches. Not a good beach to bathe due to the dirty fine/muddy sand.

It's just a "must tick off" destination on the regular tourist circuit.

The only place worth the hype is the Vizhinjam Light House which is right next to the Light House Beach. The views from top of the light house are excellent.

Shopping area in the Light House beach is open late into the evening (underlining the commercialisation of the place).

Accessibility of the Light House beach is especially bad with a narrow/steep hill road leading to it and it is troublesome (especially to haul luggage) if one stays in some resort/hotel in that beach.
