The monsoon and rough tides has destroyed the old charm of the beach .public has been completely barred from even wetting their feet .
Port construction by Adani group that the coastline has been destroyed.

Sunset at Kovalam beach is amazing. The rocks and palms offer great photo opportunities. Beach is kept well.

The beach is beautiful and not much traffic due to the heavey rainfall at part due to cyclone . I was lucky enough to have good weather on my days to this place. I stayed at Aanandakosha Ayurveda and visited twice the beach , even though I was in my Ayurveda treatments. A worth place to visit.

Beautiful beach. You can take a bath too and most importantly there is a changing room in the parking which is very close to the beach. You'll be charged only ₹20 for the same. North Indians can enjoy Bhel Puri, Golgappe and other stuffs. Overall it was a smooth experience. Well managed !!

The beach was neat and clean. But we visited there when Covid protocol was in place. We loved the place and we will definitely get back again during better times

Very crowded but pretty beach, just north of Lighthouse Beach. There are shops with inexpensive clothing and trinkets...lots of haggling. A bit rundown. I wouldn't feel safe roaming around here at night, alone.

We stayed in Kovalam for 3 days. Easy walk from Turtle resort to the beach. It’s a nice local beach, except for Christmas Day it’s not that crowded. Rental of beds and surf boards on the beach
