Tips for Visitors


Kovalam

Kovalam is one of India's internationally renowned beaches and is a favourite haunt for tourists since 1930. Kovalam consists of three successive crescent shaped beaches, out of which the southern most is the most popular one and is known as the Lighthouse Beach. A natural bay, serene blue waters of the Arabian Sea and an expansive spread of luxuriant palm groves well describes Kovalam.

Bekal

Bekal has one of the most enchanting beaches of Kerala, situated on the northern tip. The Bekal Fort projecting into the sea offers a spectacular view of the surroundings. Bekal Fort is the largest and best preserved fort in Kerala, and is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India.

Varkala

This is a holy beach, known as ‘Papanashini’ meaning, 'that which destroys sins'. High cliffs border the excellent beach. The mineral water springs gushing out from these cliffs are well known for their medicinal properties. The 2000 year old Sree Janardhana Swamy Temple and the Nature Cure Centre are the two main attractions here.
