Kovalam is a lovely little beach town in Kerala. Translating to mean ‘a grove of coconut trees’, Kovalam’s name is truly deserved as many coconut trees surround the city. Kovalam’s three sandy beaches, separated by rocks, draw several tourists to this picturesque little town. These beaches are the Samudra Beach, Hawa Beach and the Lighthouse Beach. Apart from these beautiful beaches, Kovalam is also famous for being a wellness hotspot. Most of the resorts in Kovalam offer Ayurvedic massages, as well as yoga, herbal body toning, and meditation sessions.
