    This beach gives you a feel of a foreign land, the beach s sparkling clean, with a bevy of restaurants close by serving great food. the Lighthouse as such is closed, and not yet open after the Corono lockdown, but a lovely place to unwind, stare at the waves and enjoy a meal!

    The beach is beautiful and not much traffic due to the heavey rainfall at part due to cyclone . I was lucky enough to have good weather on my days to this place. I stayed at Aanandakosha Ayurveda and visited twice the beach , even though I was in my Ayurveda treatments. A worth place to visit.

    Excellent beach outing with family and friends. Wear light clothes. Bikini maybe objected. Very conservative local population. Drinking openly is not permitted. Paid parking facility by the beach side available at government rates. Old lighthouse, cliff side view of the beach are a few best attractions apart from the amazing sunset. Check sunset timings before you venture out so that you don't miss the spectacular view. Weather is comfortable with light clothes during November to February. I enjoyed cycling from Trivandrum to kovalam early hours of the day following the National Highway. Tender Coconut water is an absolute relish and refreshing after the workout. Eating joints and bar are available at affordable prices. This is one of the few best beaches I have seen in India. Do not miss the fun.

    We visited during weekday and it was drizzling. So, it was less crowded and a beauty to watch the nature. Boat ride is a must. Not guaranteed that you will spot wild animals in the island forest. Very good spot for a day trip.

    To see the fishermen's catch you must arrive very early.
    The experience if you do is well worthwhile

    Aavaduthura Devi Temple .... Nice atmosphere and very silent place...mostly lovable architecture...Most of the people trust the temple...Place of worship. Avaduthura Devi Temple is non-touristy temple where locals join to pray. There is a ayyappa, Krishna and other god's temples inside main temple complex. Wear full dress. Everything else is fine. No entry fee, no commercialized like other major temples.

    I stayed there for 3 days, initially planned for 2 days and then extended one more day just because of the good vibes there.
    Its a perfect escape place for complete relaxation,
    It's so calm and soothing so that we feel like we are disconnected from our routine life,
    They have very large rooms, nice balcony from where we can look into the greeneries, and a nice swimming pool, in house restorant with very nice ambience, where door step delivery is also available which is so good, also really greate food (You shoud definitely try the chicken roast😇😋), and nobody will enter to your privacy even with a look so that you can dwell into your own world and seek peace ☮️,
    The beach is so near, easy to catch.
    The staffs are so nice and friendly.
    Daily room cleaning is available.
    A large yoga hall is available.
    In a nutshell, it's a perfect (budget friendly) place for a physical and mental retreat.

    What a Gem! I called Vinayachanran at the BodhiDharam Wellness Center a few days before my planned trip to the Kovalam area. He knew exactly what I wanted and within minutes he had set up my schedule. He arranged a pick up and drop off at my Hotel so i did not have to worry about transportation.
    While there are many 5 star luxury spa options to choose from in the area, I wanted an authentic Ayurvedic massage experience at the right price.
    Vinayachandran checked all the boxes. His technique was perfect and so relaxing that I drifted off to sleep during the process which is the highest accolade I can give!
    I have been to more than a dozen Ayurvedic Spas in the last few years and I think this ranks near the very top for authenticity, attention to detail and the rigor and discipline of the correct technique and ingredients used. I was so satisfied with the experience I went back twice for 3 hours each time. And price made it very affordable.

    I have had a chance to spent a month in Kovalam and went almost every day to make yoga with Sudhir - and it was just an amazing experience.
    Sudhir has taken a lot of time to show and correct all the poses.
    He has explained me also a lot of things about meditation.
    I have learned a lot from him, Sudhir has shown me how beautiful is yoga and how much my body can do.
    In addition I could see every evening very beautiful sunset.
    Thank you very much and hope to see you again :)

    This is the second year I came to Kovalam especially to train with Ajay. I cannot recommend him enough, he is such a good teacher....so much empathy and understanding of each student's needs and abilities. Also he improves his own knowledge every year with 3 months training in Mysore...a truly inspirational teacher.
