Amazing location

Any fish catcher here, then you must visit samudra Beach for catching fish with villagers in early sunrise, we did it and we could get enough fishes, not we but with fisherman we also did a great job of catching fishes. It's near to uday samudra hotel and it's right near the road, so it's easy to come here.

Serene and clean beach

As I was staying in KTDC Samudra, this beach is just 100 Mts from the resort. Very clean, serene and very less crowded. One can enjoy while evening sitting idle watching waves.

Avearge beach

It is average beach in Kovalam, not safe for bath. It is not as good as other beaches in Kovalam. It is famous for early morning fishing. It is also very neat beach but I did not like this beach very much.

Not much for travellers, only for fishermen

The northern part of the beach is known as Samudra Beach, a calm bay of blue waters in Samudra beach, not much of travellers are going because it opens for fisherman & much of local crowds.

Not a very crowded beach

The country fishing boats, fishermen weaving their nets, the waves lashing to the sea wall and rocks are awesome but walking through the rocks and cliffs are bit adventurous and more than that risky in the Samudra beach. But I loved this beach because it was not very crowded.

High tides during monsoon so, not allowed

This beach is available to public from Sept to Apr as from April to Aug end during monsoon it's high tide. Few restaurants are there along with good hotels like Taj Vivanta, Udaya Samudra, KTDC Samudra, Puja Samudra. The pure North Indian veg restaurant JOTHI VILAS who serves Jain food also is here.
