Known for its three crescent beaches, Kovalam has been a favourite haunt of tourists since the 1930s. An enormous rocky promontory on the beach has created a beautiful bay of calm waters.
There's a lot to do on this beach. The tropical sun acts so fast that you can see the faint blush of coppery tan on your skin in just a few minutes. You can sunbathe, swim, get herbal body toning massages, do cultural activities and cruise on catamarans. Life on the beach starts late in the day and lasts all night. Among the beach complex's amenities are budget cottages, Ayurvedic health resorts, convention facilities, shopping zones, swimming pools, yoga and Ayurvedic massage centers.
