Kovalam beach is a tourist hot spot, both for foreigners and in the larger part Indian people on holiday, and has been since around the 1930s after the local Maharajah decided that they liked the area and built a palace there. Its sometimes crowded, slightly overpriced and as a foreigner you will get approached a lot by people wanting to sell you things or just to get your money. However, these annoyances aside Kovalam beach is a great place and there are affordable places to stay in the area around the beach as well places to eat and drink.
Kovalam beach is in fact three beaches, each separated by a rocky headland. The most southerly and most popular of the three beaches is Lighthouse which, as the name suggests, features a lighthouse built on a small hill behind the beach. The next most popular beach is Hawah beach, which is where the local fishing fleet departs from in the morning, which is a popular attraction in its own right. The quietest of the three beaches is Samudra beach as fewer tourists go there.
