Fishing canoes rest Kovalam Beach in the early morning.

Kovalam Beach

Kovalam Beach near Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) is a fine blend of sun, sand and warm saltwater.

If you get tired of lying on the beach, soaking up the sun and floating in the warm sea, there’s always shopping for trinkets and meeting the locals (who will A swimer enters the water at the rocky point below Leela Kempinski Kovalam Beach Hotel in early morning.most likely initiate a conversation whether you’re interested or not). One thing they have on offer is canoe rides around the cove, a most basic form of Watertravel experience that is well worth the few rupees they ask.

We stayed at the hotel Leela Kempinski Kovalam Beach, which is somewhat pricey when compared to others in the area but a bargain compared to beachfront lodging in many other tropical resorts around the world. It is air conditioned and designed to give a sense of privacy in rooms with spacious, walled verandahs.
