Must Experience the View at the top

Good location for photography lovers. Beach is neat and clean and rocky cliffs. Greenery of coconut tree farms in one side and other side touches the sea..

Better to climb up just before sunset. Not much place up there, so sometimes it becomes too crowdy. And you cant spend much time up there as only limited space. Too many stairs so not recommended for elderly people.

This is indeed a place to visit to get a good view of the whole beach area and the sea itself. We could not get access to the lighthouse but from the stand point itself one could get a good view of Kovalam Beach. Worth the visit.

The lighthouse on the Southern side of Kovalam is source of light for ships in the night and one of the tourist spots. The views from the place are great and the govt is now setting up lift to make it more convenient for travelers who cant climb up
