Great enjoyment during holidays

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
