“Something for everyone”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

There is a seedy side to this beach, but you see what you want to see. My family and I absolutely loved it, with the shore line cafes, boutique style shops and cosy atmosphere.

“big waves”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The beach is nice but not perfecrt for swimming. The currents come pretty close to the shore so you have to be really carefull not to swim too far. there is lifegueards whisling away to keep you safe.
In the evening the berach is a lovely place to sit and look at the sunset. You can see it so beautifully here.
The beach front has a lot of restorangs to have a nice sea meal.

“rough seas... dirty breach”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We liked eating beachfront. Our favorite was Tandoor. It was just so disappointing to see the beaches littered with trash.

“Best beach at Kovalam”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

The best beach at kovalam, the gradient is smooth and nice waves to enjoy during high tide. You can get two beach cots and an umbrella for two - three hours for $3-4. The beach is lined up with nice eating places like cafe de la mar......
