Kovalam Tailormade Holidays

16 km from Thiruvananthapuram city in the state of Kerala, the internationally renowned beach resort of Kovalam on the Arabian Sea has been a favourite haunt of tourists since 1960's. Kovalam consists of four, relatively small, stretches of sand. The seaport of Vizhinjam nearby is famous for its special varieties of fish, old Hindu temples, big churches and a mosque.

The southernmost beach, known as the Lighthouse Beach, is the most popular. And, yes, the beach does possess a big lighthouse on its promontory! On the other side of the small, rocky headland is Hawah Beach, which is often peppered with fishermen, who hand-haul nets containing their daily catch. Once the beach to green light ‘topless’ sunbathing, it is now no longer permitted. North of the headland is Kovalam Beach and Samudra Beach. The coastline is dotted with accommodation and places to eat and shop.

Water sports, catamaran cruising, yoga, meditation and rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatments are popular distractions in idyllic Kovalam. Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian subcontinent. Ayurveda roughly translates as the "knowledge of life". Ayurvedic treatments, be it massage or a cure for common ills, is considerably lower in price in India than in the West. Whilst it is now fashionable in the West, Ayurveda has been practiced since the time of Buddha and before!
