Located just 25 kilometres from the city, Kovalam beach is part of the Kovalam village located on the shores of Bay of Bengal, on the East Coast Road next to Muttukaadu Bridge. Also known as Covelong beach, it is a crescent-shaped beach and offers truly magnificent views. Do not confuse this beach with the Kovalam town in Kerala.

You can try boating and wind surfing here. In fact, it is one of the rare places in India where wind surfing is possible. However in recent times, owing to extensive commercialisation, the sanity of the beach is affected.

  • Opening Closing Time Preferably before 6 pm
