It's difficult to rate Chowara beach as parts of it (the parts outside of the hotels) are very clean and lovely. Other parts are an environmental nightmare with discarded plastics and other litter. The beaches in Goa were definitely cleaner.

The calm and isolated location and the scenic setting makes the Chowara beach an excellent place to visit. Not at all commercialised.

This is one of the best beaches. Surprisingly it was very clean when I went. This beach has also many resorts near by. If you could stay in one of the sea side view ones then I guarantee you it will a experience of your life time.

In my opinion the best beach in Kovalam. No crowds, clean and peaceful. Mostly catering to resorts in the area but anybody can go. near a fishing village so you can watch fishermen work.
