Anybody know about this beach in Kerala, India? How is it?
There are many beaches in Kovalam, some of them are very unique with sea on one side and a backwater or lagoon on the other side with the beach nestled in between. All of them are working beaches which means local fishermen are working there and if you go early morning you can catch a lot of action. If you are staying in a super premium property like the Vivanta by Taj - Kovalam, Kerala Vivanta by Taj then they have very clean beaches ( they are not private but the hotels take care of them as part of keeping the visitors happy / CSR ) . You can check some of my pics that I clicked on Kovalam Beaches
Kovalam is a touristy beach. crowded yet clean. all type of accommodation are available there
