Nice place to have fun

Covelong beach of Goa is wow kind to hav tym there. Even Adventure activities are available that need to be approached directly than going through mediators; mediators help can be taken as the guide expects Commission. The beach is very clean and tidy, a lot numer shacks available wit huge variety of food, drinks and even people. The party nearby can also be visited in group having safety and secured mindset; which will make our trip very extraordinary and replenish ourselves.

Nice beach, but little smelly

Nice beach although lonely, you will not find it crowded as Marina. Visit in early day hours to have best experience. Bit smelly that is due to ocean water. Sometime high waves comes in.

Deep relaxation in the Seashore

Covelong's etymology goes like, COVE meaning a naturally formed cave through aging of rocks. So "Covelong" is a beach of rocks. It is called "Kovalam" in local Tamil language. It is located to the south of world's second largest MARINA beach at Chennai. Covelong is a neat and clear beach with deep shallows and natural rocks for added scenic beauty. Local anglers boats will add beauty for the beach. A Hindu temple and a church near the shore will give peace for all walks of people. One can have good time at evening with local boys surfing with wood logs.

Sea, crabs and hammocks

A very neat beach. Actually, in India it is kind of hard to find one, and sea is full of crab and fishes. One can actually see from the beach fishes jumping in the waters. Nice restro and cottages with hammocks can be seen alongside the beach where one can just lie down and pause for hours
