Myself and my husband are returning to Kovalam for our 2nd visit (the first was 2009) over Christmas - staying at the Uday Samudra as we did before.
Last time I was there - I fell ill for the most part of the 2nd week, so although I enjoyed the holiday immensley, we didn't get to see very much.
We have worked very hard all year, so the most important thing is for us to relax and be lazy for a few weeks!! Therefore, we don't want to go too far.
Can anyone suggest any day trips out to me please? Of course I'd love to see some wildlife, maybe backwaters, etc - but as mentioned, we wouldn't want to travel more than an hour or 2 to get there. Is there anywhere nearby for us to visit?
Thanks for your feedback!
