Kovalam is a small sleepy town just south of Thiruvananthapuram, located 16 kilometres away from the centre of the city. KOvalam is located by the Arabian Sea, and thus has some stunning views of the sea to offer. Among Kerala honeymoon places, Kovalam is a must see for you and your partner.
Kovalam is a cultural blend with people flocking to this town from far off places in the world. Because the rocky mountains have created a crescent along the coastline, the sea here is relatively calmer, making the Kovalam beach ideal for swimming, and water-related activities.
You can sunbathe here, or get a herbal massage, go for a swim in the Arabian Sea, walk along the beach, go for shopping and buy souvenirs, or eat seafood cooked Kerala style art the restaurants. You can find all types of accommodation here, ranging from budget hotels to five stars. Among the local attractions, you can visit the Padmanabhaswamy temple, the Sri Chitra Art Gallery, and the Napier Museum.
