Kovalam Beach

One of India's - and, indeed, the entire world's - finest beaches traces the Keralan coast roughly 15km away from central Trivandrum. The beach is a travellers' darling, and a popular evening hangout spot for Trivandrum locals. The Lighthouse Beach at Kovalam's southern end has an elevated viewing platform and is especially scenic.

Do & See

There is plenty to warrant a stay in Kerala's first city, and it is here, in Trivandrum, that a visitor can have the best go at experiencing Keralan urban life. If the inner city's museums and palaces prove insufficient, tranquil beaches (most notably, one of the world's finest: Kovalam) and further sights are only a short drive away.
