If you are just rushing through Kovalam or planning to hide yourself from the rest of the world in some isolated cottage, either way there are some experiences that you simply cannot miss.

  • Climb up the rocky cliff to the lighthouse for the most spectacular views of the entire village and the vast oceans beyond. The few fishing boats and ships on the horizon add to the beauty of the whole scene. We suggest you do the climb at either sunrise or sunset.

  • The lighthouse remains open from 3pm to 5pm every afternoon. Climb up the spiral staircase and get a bird’s eye view of all the coves and beaches in Kovalam. With the Brahminy Kites circling overhead, the whole scenery becomes absolutely breath taking. This is a must do, if climbing stairs is not too strenuous for you.


  • Taste the fried chicken slathered with a spicy red paste. Or attack a plate of seafood         cooked with a typical coastal flair and served on banana leaves. Go for the Tandoori prawns or the Calamari. Once you have it, you’ll never forget the taste. And food has been known to be a powerful incentive to bring people back again and again.


  • Get a tan. It’s almost sinful, not to. For that you’ll have to spend some time on the beach.         


  • Indulge in some Ayurvedic oil massages. They have some quick, basic ones, if you are reeeeally short on time, but it’s very refreshing and relaxing. After all, if you have to rush out, you might as well rush out feeling great and on top of the world!

If nothing else, you must not miss out on this experience. The best part is all of the above suggestions can be done at the lighthouse beach; you don’t need to go anywhere else. Convenient or what?
