Kovalam - A heaven on earth



Travel, when you are depressed.
Travel, when you are happy.
Travel, when you feel alone.
Travel, when you are fresh.
Just travel. Travel the world. Travel to the undiscovered places.
Travel alone or along. Just travel.
Travel completes you. You feel good when travel meets you. Just travel.

This time, I would like to share my experience of the recent trip to Kovalam, a place located in south India and also known as Beach Town.

Why Should One Visit Kovalam?

  • This place is famous for backwaters. One can enjoy the delicious meals on the floating restaurants.
  • Many small islands to spend a good time. And the journey to those islands is through lush green beauty.
  • One can see the merging of two oceans, Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal.
  • This place has something for all age group and people with the different taste which includes temples, places to relax and sea life.

My travel experience to Kovalam

It was a family trip. I assumed this trip would just be religious one since we planned to cover temples mostly. But, to my surprise, this travel became one of the most exciting ones as the time passed.

Day 1:

I had an early morning flight, and out of anxiety, I could not sleep the night before. I got up somehow and managed to get ready in 20 mins and luckily didn't miss it. Trivandrum also known as Thiruvananthapuram is the major city and has the nearest airport to Kovalam. I reached Thiruvananthapuram at 10.30 in the morning. My parents and I were traveling from different locations, and I had to wait there to meet them since they reached Trivandrum airport after an hour from me. Once they reached the airport, we headed to Kovalam which is around 18-20 km from Trivandrum airport.
During our 18 km journey from the airport to Kovalam city, the greenery all around gave us a sense of freshness, and all fatigues due to short sleep and travel were no more.
We were so fortunate to get to a resort that was situated just on the sea-shore, and the beach we could see from our balcony was Light House beach. It was a fascinating view from the balcony. You will inescapably fall in love with the early morning breakfast while viewing a blue water sea.

You can hire a taxi at relatively cheaper rates, or you can hire an auto-rickshaw on the day or hourly basis. It makes commuting an easy task in Kovalam. My first day in Kovalam was soothing. We had a walk at sea-shore, clicking pictures, enjoying the beautiful lights and hopping restaurants. The place has fantastic varieties of fish for the seafood lovers.
The food of Kerala is delicious. I had my dinner at Neelkanth resort, the same place which we booked to stay. Many other resorts/hotels like this resort provide services like spa, massage, manicure pedicure which lead to the relaxed ending of a day. One can never forget the magnificent view of the sea with having candle-light dinner on roof-top.

image

Day 2-

On the second day, we planned to visit Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple first. This temple is the world's richest temple and is always in media's attention. This temple has several doors(6 vaults), and behind these, a priceless treasure is there. After Supreme Court's approval, temple opened these doors and found a priceless treasure including idol of deity, crowns, pots, etc. Still, one more door called Vault B has not opened, and people believe, the person who opens this door has to face disastrous results. Researchers believe the worth of the treasure behind these vaults is more than $1 trillion.

Early morning, we hired an auto and started our day. The temple is in Trivandrum, and it took us around half an hour to reach the temple. The structure of the temple is marvelous. One needs to follow few rituals to enter this temple. We also wore the traditional clothes required. The best part is you can always rent these clothes(dhoti) from nearby shops if you are not willing to purchase new ones just to visit this temple. The peace and beauty of the temple mesmerized me. It took us almost one hour to complete the darshan and parikrama(moving around the temple in circular shape mostly. People believe it calms the mind and we get to absorb positive vibes).

We headed to another temple called Attukal Bhagavathy temple which was situated nearby only. This temple is devoted to Goddess Bhadrakali. Bhadrakali is the goddess of salvation and prosperity. After all the darshans(sightseeing), we had food and took some rest. Lighthouse, Poovar, aquarium, port were the next places on our list.

We reached fishing harbor port and witnessed trading of fishes with a lot of ships all around.

image

image

image

The aquarium is situated just near the fishing harbor port. I think these were the most beautiful fishes I ever saw. They had the prettiest natural color in their body, and even some fishes looked like wearing jewelry and other ornaments.

image

image

image

Then we headed to Poovar. This place is famous for backwaters. Many times, I imagined myself sailing into the water with beautiful trees around then reaching a pretty island. Poovar was the place which made my imagination come true. We reached Pooaver at around 5 pm. You will get many boat vendors who will sail you through the sea and take you to the beautiful Island/s. We started in the evening, crossed a forest in the backwaters, saw mango cultivation, many different kinds of rocks. We reached a lovely island after all these sight-seeing. We were able to see both Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal from there. After witnessing a beautiful and serene sunset, we headed back.

The next afternoon after visiting a beautiful beach, we left Kovalam. I would love to visit this place as many times as I get a chance to visit. We inevitably miss the Kovalam beaches and the charm of the area. But as rightly said, “We part to meet again.” I hope that happens soon.

Tips:

  • Uber cab services are available here, so, try to go with this instead of bargaining with a local taxi driver.
  • Make sure you don’t miss to visit this aquarium when you are in Kovalam.
  • Vendors charge a hefty amount for arranging a visit to the island. So, be smart, ask different vendors and do not hesitate to bargain.

Keep Travelling

just awesome ..
One can never be satisfied with travel
You really opened my appetite
Thank you for sharing your experience with us

·

amazing post my steemit friend wish you good luk thank you

Awesome review @qagiri. Very cool place indeed. Nice beach. I am sure you had a great time. Thanks for sharing with us.
From the pic, the magnificent view of the aquamarine water, shining sand and a lighthouse supporting it all is amazing. It looks like a great place for surfing. I love to see people surf probably i will learn one day.
I will definitely visit one day. Your pics alone is enough to drag me there :)
I really like that it has something for all ages and group. I also like the temple pics.
One more thing i will ask is if language is a barrier in india. I and some colleagues travelled to Japan once. In one of the incident we hired a taxi to take us to the nearest Metro station as shown in map . He dissuaded us and was not willing . He did not know English and he was japanese ofcourse and he was speaking and trying to tell us something . But we insisted and sat in the taxi . Wow he just went to Red light about 300 mtrs and turned left u turn and there was the metro station behind the building . So he was trying to tell that we don’t need taxi and can go on foot. :)
So hope language is not much of a problem.
Thanks for the post @adsactly.

·

Thanks a ton @georgechuks
Language(English) should not be a barrier while visiting these places. You will many people who speak English.

Travel is one of those things in life that will help you find yourself and cope with any depression. This is a feeling of freedom, which can not always be expressed in words. As one person said: "Do not spend your money on clothes - waste them on travel - in fact what difference does it take how many years your sneakers if you are on the beach of the Maldivian beach"
My dream is to visit all 7 wonders of the world and I hope that Steemit will bring me closer to my dream.
Kovalam is an incredibly beautiful and picturesque place. Your family is lucky to be in such atmospheric places. Breakfast on the balcony deserves special attention :)
You definitely spent time with benefit. I liked this detailed description of your travel and individual places. Everyone who has this opportunity should visit this place. and a special thank you for the advice, I'm sure there will be people here who will use them there (I repeat that I hope and I will be able to use them someday)
Thanks @qagiri and @adsactly , that was interesting.

Wow!

Pretty beautiful!

Why not try the Philippines!

Amazing Places To Visit In The Philippines In 2018

Wondering what are the best places to visit in the Philippines in 2018? Here’s a list of some of the finest and grandest destinations as well as the up-and-coming sites in this gorgeous Southeast Asian hub!

With over 7,000 gorgeous islands to choose from, planning a trip to the Philippines in 2018 can be a rather overwhelming and mind-boggling experience for any traveler. From the breath-snatching, idyllic rolling hills of Batanes to the fabulous cascades of Lake Sebu, the Philippines has a cornucopia of awe-inspiring destinations that are worthy of a traveler’s bucket list. Whether you’re a history buff or a sun-kissed beach bum, you will find your bliss as well as ignite your innate sense of wanderlust in the Philippines.

Huma Island, Palawan

Want to take a break from the crowded cities and places to visit in the Philippines? Then, spend a luxurious getaway at the Human Island Resort – a heavenly refuge full of indulgence and adventure. Majestically cradled in the stunning turquoise waters of Palawan, this one-of-a-kind Maldivian-like resort beckons weary people who are longing for a tropical escape and a personalized zen-like experience of exploration and discovery. Blending world-class facilities and cushy accommodations with mouthwatering dishes and fun-filled adventures, this remote island certainly has an array of treats in store for its guests.

Camiguin

Camiguin, aptly labeled as the “Island Born of Fire”, is a fascinating island-province brimming with volcanoes like Mount Uhay, Mount Hibok-Hibok, Mount Vulcan and Mount Mambajao. As a matter of fact, Camiguin holds the record for the island with most number of volcanoes for every square kilometer in the world. But, make no mistake about it – there is more to this small Philippine province than its volcanic riches.

After all, it is a secluded destination that boasts a plethora of natural wonders, including refreshing waterfalls, cold and hot springs, and an untouched sand bar. Plus, it has plenty of other intriguing attractions to offer to its visitors as well, including the infamous sunken cemetery, well-preserved ancestral homes and centuries-old churches. And, did we mention that it is the host to the Lanzones festival – one of the most popular, dynamic and anticipated festivals in the Philippines?

Coron, Palawan

Coron, often revered as one of the most beautiful places to visit in the Philippines, is truly a spectacular tropical paradise that will wow you in a lot of different ways. Praised for its postcard-perfect scenery, this Philippine destination delights its visitors with its crystalline waters, pristine white-sand beaches, towering limestone cliffs, and picturesque remote islands. What’s more, Coron has decent and colorful corals, and has a host of underwater wrecks, making it one of the best places to visit in the Philippines for diving aficionados.

Batanes

Batanes, one of the dream places to visit in the Philippines for local travelers, is a surreal haven that promises to give you a slice of heaven of earth. Famed for its sheer natural beauty and distinct landscapes, this remote wonderland leaves its beholders in awe with its majestic lofty cliffs, rolling hills, boulder-lined shores and deep canyons. In addition, this paradisiacal place flaunts a myriad of sturdy and historic stone houses.

El Nido, Palawan

Blessed with a wealth of pocket caves and eye-catching beaches, El Nido is Mother Nature’s way of showing off her grand and supreme beauty. With its sunning inlets, clear waters vibrant beaches, El Nido indeed has one of the beautiful seascapes in the world. More than just a stereotypic beach destination, El Nido is also admired for its verdant jungle and steep limestone cliffs, which magnificently form a Karst backdrop that is similar to those found in Guilin, Krabi and Ha Long Bay.

Cebu City

The city of Cebu is not just an awesome base and jump-off point to explore the Philippines, but it is a worthy destination in itself as well. Here, you’ll get a sweet taste of Philippine history and art with its collection of historic monuments like Casa Gorordo, Fort San Pedro, Magellan’s Cross and the Lapu Lapu Monument. As an added plus, the city also has plenty of shopping malls, up-and-coming restaurants and interesting diversions, such as Crown Regency’s Sky Experience Adventure.

Camotes, Cebu

Want to get true taste of the laid-back island life in the Philippines? Head off the grid on the islands of Camotes – a couple of hours east of the city of Cebu. Just bring some extra cash since there are no ATMs on these places to visit in the Philippines.

Boracay, Aklan

Boracay is, without a shadow of a doubt, the ultimate beach destination and one of the top places to visit in the Philippines. Voted as one of the world’s best islands in 2015 by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler, this world-famous island lures travel junkies from all corners of the earth with its magnificent sunsets, dazzling waters and soft white sands. Furthermore, it has a buzzing nightlife scene that would give Ibiza – the world’s party capital – a run for its money.

Lake Sebu

Why should you pay a visit to Lake Sebu? While Lake Sebu is not as famous as Boracay and Palawan, it’s nonetheless a charming and lush destination with a burgeoning tourism industry. One of the most underrated places to visit in the Philippines, Lake Sebu is home to a cluster of striking waterfalls and extremely clean lakes. Not to mention, a visit to this destination will give a taste of the wondrous culture of the Ubo and T’boli tribes. To top it all off, it is home to arguably the best and most thrilling zipline ride in the Philippines. Trust me, Lake Sebu’s extraordinary zipline will literally take your breath away.

Tagaytay

Vigan

For the ultimate throwback adventure in the Philippines, visit Vigan – the country’s first and only UNECO World Heritage city. A delight for culture vultures and history junkies, Vigan is a unique and historic destination that rightfully deserves a spot on your bucket list. A visit here will give you a wonderful glimpse of the intriguing colonial past and culture of the country. From Spanish-styled houses to a 17th century Augustinian cathedral, Vigan has an old-world charm to give your fix for history and culture.

Siquijor

Siuijor, dubbed as one the most mysterious places to visit in the Philippines, is a serene cove that is believed to be a breeding ground for witches, sorcerers and even mythical supernatural creatures. Although everyone knows that these rumors are not true, many still think that it is an island drenched in mystery and magic. Nevertheless, folks who come to this place will be mesmerized by the beauty of its waterfalls, parks and beaches like the Kagusuan Beach and Salagdoong Beach.

Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park

If scuba diving is your cup of tea, then make sure to put Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park on top of your list of places to visit in the Philippines. Billed as one of the world’s best dive sites, this wonderful aquatic world is a protected sanctuary that serves as a home to vibrant coral reefs, the endangered hawksbill sea turtles, sharks, lionfish, clownfish, sea turtles and mantra rays. Inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Tubbataha is a sanctuary to dozens of bird species as well.

Catanduanes

On the lookout for a cheaper and closer alternative to Batanes? Then, make sure to include Catanduanes to your list of the places to visit in the Philippines in 2018! Nicknamed as the “land of the howling winds”, Cantaduanes is a typhoon-prone province that will sweep you away with its serene mountain tops, scenic grasslands, strong ocean breeze and towering cliffs. As with Batanes, Catanduanes flaunts plenty of historic sites and Instagrammable rock formations.

Mount Pulag, Luzon

Mount Pulag is, as far as I’m concerned, one of the bucket-list worthy places to visit in the Philippines for adventurists and nature lovers. As you take a hiking trip in this adventure playground, you’ll get to treat yourself to majestic vistas of the famous sea of clouds and Milky Way Galaxy at daybreak.

Bohol

The Chocolate Hills, one of the most iconic sights in the country, is a series of hills that spread beautifully over the municipalities of Batuan, Sagbayan and Carmen in Bohol. These natural wonders are called “Chocolate Hills” because their layers of green grass turn super brown during the country’s dry season, making these hills look like your favorite confections. Bohol, besides these otherworldly hills, is also well-known for its eccentric wildlife (like the Philippine tarsiers), centuries-old churches, rivers and world-class white-sand beaches.

And did I mention that there's a magical natural phenomenon known as the sea of clouds in Bohol, taking place almost every day?

Langun Gobingob Caves in Samar

With tons of caves mapped and explore on this island, it’s no wonder extreme outdoor adventure junkies are calling Samar as the country’s caving capital. Langun Gobingob Caves – the country’s largest caving system, is found in Samar as well, specifically in Calbiga. This cave system is so huge that it can easily fit a trio of soccer fields. So, if you want to add a spice of adventure to your life in 2018, make it a point to include Samar on your places to visit in the Philippines this year.

Kalanggaman Island, Leyte

Kalanggaman Island, the crown jewel of Leyte, is a supremely beautiful sand bar that is fast becoming one of most sought-after places to visit in the Philippines. In fact, it’s becoming so gorgeous that countless of international cruise ships would make a stopover on this long, immaculate white sand bar.

Mayon Volcano, Albay

Listed by CNN as one of the world’s most photogenic volcanoes, Mayon Volcano boasts a perfectly-shaped cone that can surpass the allure of any grand and celebrated volcano in the world.

Southern Cebu

Cebu’s southern side has a deluge of outdoor thrills, nature trips, beaches and waterfalls to keep a traveler busy for a week or even a couple of months. Beach lovers will be put into a state of euphoria with the clean and sparkling shorelines of Alcoy and Aloguinsan. Diving connoisseurs, meanwhile, will get a chance to meet and greet the friendly giants of Oslob as well as relish Moalboal’s kaleidoscopic marine life. Those who are on fond of extreme adventures will find their bliss by scaling the rocks and jumping off the cliffs and waterfalls in Badian.

The fun, however, doesn’t stop there. Take a trip to the city of Carcar, and admire its old heritage houses and structures. While there, don’t forget to sample their well-known delicacies, such as the crispy chicharon and the ultra tasty lechon.

Banaue Rice Terraces, Ifugao

Deemed as the “Eight Wonder of the World”, this national treasure is definitively one of the best places to visit in the Philippines for sightseeing and nature trips. Likewise, a trip here will give you an opportunity to get in touch with nature as well as meet the Ifugao tribes.

Northern Samar

Dramatic rock formations, cloistered coves, and untouched beaches await travelers who visit Northern Samar, which is one of the most undervalued gems and places to visit in the Philippines. Biri Island, the undisputed star in the province’s burgeoning tourism, will delight you with its incredibly beautiful and jaw-dropping rock formations. But, there’s more to Northern Samar than this beloved island. Try to discover the island’s neighbors, and you will surely be rewarded with heaps of wonderful surprises along the way.

Manjuyod Sandbar

Manjuyod Sandbar isn’t dubbed as the “Maldives of the Philippines” for nothing. With clear waters and a stretch of majestic white sands, this enthralling sandbar will definitely make you feel that you are standing in one of the premier beach destinations in the world. Additionally, it has cottages that seem like they are floating on blue shallow waters, adding more flavor and Maldivian atmosphere to this sandbar. As an added plus, a visit here gives you an opportunity to spot a cluster of dolphins and whale sharks.

Iloilo City

For an unforgettable culinary experience in the Philipines, head to the city of Iloilo and appease your gastronomic cravings to a wide array sumptuous treats, including La Paz Batchoy and Pancit Molo. More than just a culinary paradise, this city is also drenched in history and culture, teeming with intricate historic sites, like Molo Church, Plaza Libertad, Museo Iloilo and Jaro Cathedral. Not to mention, it’s a gateway to another splendid beach destinations in the Philippines – Guimaras Island.

Bontoc, Mountain Province

For years, Bontoc has been overshadowed by its incredibly popular neighbors – Banaue and Sagada. But the good news is, Bontoc is slowly making waves, and is getting some spotlight as well as love from intrepid travelers. One of the most underrated places to visit in the Philippines, Bontoc will sweep you off your feet with its enthralling sights, such as Mount Fato, Mount Kupapey and Maligcong Rice Terraces.

Siargao, Surigao del Norte

They don’t call Siargao as the surfing capital of the Philippines for nothing. A paradise for surfing aficionados, Siargao is beloved across the world for its healthy daily dose of huge swells as well as undisturbed winds from the world’s largest ocean. If, however, you’re not overly fond of surfing, the island still has a heap of attractions to appease your wanderlust, including Guyam Island, Daku Island, Suhoton Cove national Park, Pacifico beach and Magpupungko Tide Pools.

Welcome to paradise!!!

Thank you and you're welcome!

Traveling is one of the best things that you can do for your health. It helps your physical and mental health, with many travelers saying that it’s also excellent for the soul.

Sure, there are some stressful and worrying moments. But overall, when you get out on the road and visit new countries you gain in far more ways. This isn’t about just international travel, either. Traveling your own country and being a tourist in your own town can be so beneficially at the same time.

There are no limits when it comes to traveling, except for what you can afford. You can sight-see around some of your most dreamed about countries or choose exotic adventures. Go by rails, car, or even by boat. There are just so many options, and they will all help you in ways that you have never imagined.

·

Very well said @hollacute
Travelling is an amazing stress buster :). It makes us feel content

Once you will visit the place, you might found a lot of information which is barely available on the internet

To travel is to inspire and to be inspired. Thank you for sharing this amazing article and for being an inspiration for people who has the thirst for travel or for those who has not started travelling yet.

I've never even heard of Kovalam before, but It looks beautiful.

Nice post!

The next afternoon after visiting a beautiful beach, we left Kovalam.

For me, it's fantastic to go Kovalam. And who knows, maybe from reading such travel reports I'm not so far from visiting these places!

Really cool travel photos and post! thank you for sharing! :D

·

See I would post that as well... but I'm 100% sure that was one expensive trip lol

These are some things which you will never miss out at Kovalam Beach, Kerala like: -

Enjoy an Ayurvedic massage

Climb a coconut tree

Wandering past the Chinese fishing nets in Allepey at sunset

Stay with a family

Spend a few days on a houseboat

Watch a Kalaripayattu martial art fight

Drink a coconut

Visit the hill stations in Munnar

Drink a toddy

Take a train ride

Go on safari in the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary

·

Seems like you had an excellent time in Kerala. I'm glad :)

·

@kouba01
Nice one! Thanks for sharing

Kovalam is seaside, several pleasant beaches during the day where it is possible to bathe and the beach is supervised
During the tourist season, the city awakens with its beach merchants, restaurants (I recommend the Malabar Café), colorful shops, the swarm of tourists and locals.
A nice place to unwind and beautiful sunsets.

I can't wait until next month! I finally get to travel again. It's been way too long!

Nice place on earth!

You have had a nice time there, and you have also chosen the areas that are wonderful in the winter ,,, I also love to travel, but to the areas where nature exists

One day, I would love to travel and go on places that are good gems like this.

I like travel with my best friend and with my family .properle my sister because she is so good charactrestic girl and she undrestand my feelings goodly .when i want to go to walking anywhere she wants my good guard so she sends her son with me .

Yeah, have been thinking about traveling as well. But the hardest part is freeing yourself from responsibility ie family, job etc.

Everything is transient. Adjustment is part of life. My wife and I made a decision when our kid was 9 months old that we would pack our lives into a pair of rucksacks and go travelling as a family for 6 months. There was very little information or useful support available at the time. 7 years later and my wife runs a vibrant Facebook community and hosts a website all focused on facilitating other families to take the plunge and travel without fear. It's not for everyone, but it's not as scary as it initially seems! If you want help in making the decision you could do worse than check "Our Tribe Travels" and leverage on the body of knowledge the community have created.

Nice!!!, que buenas fotos!!! y que buen paseo!

This place looks incredible and magnificent! I agree with you man, travel is like meditation, it relaxes every part of our body and mind! Great post.

Travel, when you are depressed.
Travel, when you are happy.
Travel, when you feel alone.
Travel, when you are fresh.
Just travel. Travel the world. Travel to the undiscovered places.
Travel alone or along. Just travel.
Travel completes you. You feel good when travel meets you. Just travel.

You forget that "travel you are not a tree" lol
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful experiences with us i appreciate that i respect people like you who is know the meaning of life

Thanks a ton @womby :)

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move. Travelling makes me speechless and turns me into a story teller, mostly the source of my inspiration. Beautiful pictures by the way,and just so you know,this is my best account on steemit so far.

Thank you for lovely description of Kovalam. Are there also a lot of ayurvedic hospitals? We plan to visit Kerala and go there for a treatment. For now we are just collecting information about that so we will be ready when we get there. Well that will not happen so soon, because have just left Singapore and will be around this area for a few months. But there is never too late for recommendations 😉

And nice pictures too

I hope to be in kovalam someday. Cool collections of pictures. Traveling is full of fun, life and unlimited adventure.

Do you know??
Kovalam means a grove of coconut trees and the village of kovalam has an endless sight of coconut trees
Benefit of coconut:
1.Coconut helps to promote heart health
2.It lower the risk of heart diseases
3.It is used in the production of coconut oil
kovalam is surely a place to be in the future!

Thanks for sharing your experience! I would love to see more non-mainstream travel destinations. Keep it up.

Very nicely put adsactly!!! The place looks amazing and you ha e described it beautifully! The pictures look fabulous as well.

You should start a travel blog! :)

I have been to Kerala a few times, however, not to Kovalam yet! You might have just inspired me to plan for my next vacay there. ;)

Not sure if you have felt it though, Kerala has become very expensive now. It's not a normal vacation anymore, that it used to be 10 years ago, and I miss that!

Keep writing my friend, and you will have a reader in me. :)

Take care.

Great initiative - dlive def. needs quality streamers and it looks like this list is pretty good.

However, I noticed something which created a few concerns in me.

Wow
This is awesome

nice boss

Magical place! travel is the best way to live, who does not travel dies every day thanks for sharing those photos and stories, that make you fly the imagination, especially for those like me, that adventure is just a dream, how good to be able to enjoy it through of reading, which is another way to travel, takes you to incredible places never dreamed!

very Beautiful pictures !!!

Through this article I loved Kovalam ...Thanks for sharing this experience )^_^(

Awesome post 😍😍
Beautiful photography😲😍😍

@Upvoted

That sounds incredible. It just started snowing where I live and I'm craving the sun, sand, and beach with a good dose of culture. Such a great view from your room too! Thanks for sharing. I needed a little escape.

Kovalam is one of the best beaches in God's own country called India... The beach is very calm and beautiful. The very moment We keep our first foot steps to the beach we will feel that we are in heaven. It gives you peace and calm as well as the sweet sound of sea waves.

The beach is clean and well maintained, the water is clean and blue which is beautiful. Plenty of food and drink right by the seashore. Take a set of clothes in case you wanna take a dip but don't wander too far cuz the Arabian Sea bed is rocky and the high tides are swallowers when it is closer to or on the full moon. Clean enough environment too with tourists from all parts of the world visiting the place.

Wow!!! @adsactly, Beauty pictures, am so thrilled. Kovalam Beach in India, it's such an uncommon, life changing experience, i will term it recipe for longevity of life and living, I will try it out at my place,in my country too. Keep travelling, I look forward to you sharing with us more of your traveling experiences. I will also appreciate all and any of your motivations and encouragement. Thumbs up!

Amazing!

wao, it really was a good adventure, the place looks great, the scenery is majestic, thank you for sharing such a beautiful experience, really magical ... regards @adsactly

what a beautiful place.
I want to go abroad for a trip some day.

I wish I could shoot a picture like this..

The pictures are breathtaking. Thankyou for sharing every details of your trip to kovalam. One more location adds to my wishlist. 👍👍

Wow great review.

My wife has always wanted to stay in a hut or room that was right on the water. Looks fun.

I like the photo with the lighthouse. Here in Michigan we have many lighthouses as landmarks for ships/navigation. My dad and I like to snap photos of them.

Glad you had a fun trip, thanks for sharing!

Wow...this is super fantastically interesting, i hope to visist there some day too

@Adsactly the place looks good.
