Great !!!

An awesome place to while away your time in the sun. It's located close to the Leela, Kovalam and is a great place to relax with friends and family. You can either get a bus or taxi from the city.

Perfect destination for leisure

Bit away from hustling and bustling of Kovalam. It is the place you are looking for if leisure is on your itinerary. The beach is nice with majority of foreigners, though the waves are a bit harsh. The seafood is great.What many people miss out is that you can also go to the top of the lighthouse and the view from there is panoramic.

Just another Beach

Well the distance from city to this beach is a bit far but the ride up to there is enjoyable. If you want you can enjoy the variety of restaurants at the beach which gives out all type of cuisine and are of all price range according to your mood. Have some fresh seafood near the beach or just sit and enjoy the sea and waves. Cleanliness needs to be checked at regular intervals. Overall an average experience.

Good place to visit

You will find many foreigners wearing less clothes and enjoying swimming. There is nearby resort which is very very costly and almost foreigners stay there and enjoy the beauty of sea.The sea waves are very strong and somewhat dangerous. Be careful. There also speed boat facilities and you can enjoy by bargaining as low as for Rs. 300.

Good for relaxing but approach road is congested

The beach is good for spending evening and relaxing. The approach is very congested. But sea shore is to be clean and maintained. Some people swimming in the deeper areas are very risky. Only two guards were there and they were not able control the crowd. Tourists can have food and beautiful view of the sea.

Good beach

We visited this beach in the end of August. The temperature was little up in Trivandrum during that period of time. The beach is easily accessible by auto/taxi. Better have a bargain before you hire auto/taxi. The ocean had little rough waves that time and we didn't enter in the water. But there was a good greenery around and it was really scenic. The beach is also surrounded by number of hotel for stay and relax. Overall it was a good experience.

Nice surrounding

Yes the Light House Beach experience was good. For this beach you need to reach before 4-5 PM as in the evening it gets closed. It has very nice view from Lighthouse, however entry at below level is restricted.

Sea is rough to see

This is adjacent to Kovalam beach, in fact on the way to the lighthouse in front of countless restaurants and hotels. When we visited, nobody was allowed on the beach as the sea was very rough.

Beach looks nice and provides good seafood

Because of heavy rain that was pouring we went inside the beach had good time. We had our lunch total fish curry, tandoori chicken and lamb curry in the nearby restaurant, the beach looks very nice.

Good place but nowadays crowded

Kovalam beach is OK since the beach is relatively shallow so that one can bathe easily. Beach is pretty wide, they have a light house too, that I would say, in my opinion, better than beach itself. Just climb the lighthouse by paying some nominal ticket and it will be cynosure to your eyes. However nowadays it is very crowded, particularly during weekdays and the authorities have made lot of good spots out of bounds. Recommend to visit on working days.
