Kovalam Beach

Kovalam beach on the Malabar Coast of Kerala is a stretch of three beaches which are shaded by thick coconut groves and a perennially pleasant climate.

The word Kovalam means a grove of coconut trees. The coconut trees along the beaches give a majestic look. The place is a paradise with boundless blue waters of the Arabian Sea and miles of white sands washed away by the surf at the feet of the stalwart palms and the rocky promontories.

The beaches in Kovalam are crescent-shaped. The three beaches are

Lighthouse Beach - It provides a spectacular view of the Vizhinzam mosque. Strictly the photography is prohibited in this place.

Hawah Beach - It is the middle beach and is the base for the local fisherman.

Samudra - It is the northern-most beach which is dotted with few rudimentary wooden fishing vessels.
