Thiruvananthapuram , Kerala

Kovalam is the paradise of the south. A beach on the shores of the Arabian Sea which is located in Kerala, this place is nothing short of heavenly abode. There are many things that are written about a lot of places but no adjective can justify the beauty of Kovalam. A beach town which was custom made to be a source of joy for every single person who visits it, Kovalam is a guaranteed happiness. A small little fishing village that was hiding the potential of one of natures wonders it was first discovered by the Maharani of Travancore and later her nephew. The British who were then guests of the royal kingdom realised the potential of the beach town. Yet it was not as famous as later, In the 70 s a group of hippies on their way to Ceylon stopped in this place and was caught absolutely off guard by the sheer splendour of this wonderful place. Kovalam has three beaches in the 17 km stretch that is separated by rocky outcrops. The lighthouse beach is the most popular derived from the old lighthouse located here. At night the intermittent flashes of this on the vast sea and the beautiful beach turns it into a magical place. Eve’s Beach or the Havah beach is the hub of fisherman activity and is a wonderful place to see the daily life of this sleepy little village. Today there are a large number of beach resorts here which cater to all your needs and give you that absolutely magical beach holiday. Kovalam is finding a new significance in the light of several Ayurvedic salons, and recuperation and regeneration resorts which provide a wide variety of Ayurvedic treatments for tourists.
