Kovalam beach at sunset
Saadat Ali, the Nawab of Carnatic, built the port town Kovalam which was later taken over by the French in 1746. It is one of the few places in the East Coast where you can do windsurfing. Kovalam beach has other water sports too that make it an attraction for visitors . There is a mosque and a temple located near the beach. A little further is a church. Kovalam is a fishing village.
A walk in the narrow lanes with houses, tea shops small eateries gives you the local vibe. The sunset at the beach is a stunning sight. There are multiple hotels surrounding this beach and we decided to stay at the Lee Crystal Hotel Kovalam. The sound of the sea waves as they hit the rocks situated at the beach, along with the sky which has turned pink and the dark blue sea give you a sense of calm, away from the hustle bustle of the city, leaving you rejuvinated.
