However, one spot that truly attracts millions of leisure seekers to this shore is the pristine Kovalam beach. A perfect medley of idyllic beauty, rejuvenation, fun, entertainment and culture, Kovalam Beach offers a traveller a variety of bewitching experiences.
This mind-blowing beach comprises of three parts – the Lighthouse Beach, Hawah Beach, and Samudra Beach. Each of these beaches offers a traveller uniquely amazing experiences.
