      Well Organized. I was very happy to see the House Boat, which very nice compared to any other around there. #shreekrishnahoudeboats thank u so much. Ajeesh from Southern Travels was very active. May be at some points he would have been a bit more quickl enough to cover some more places. Else, he was good, knew all the details of the places. If his health was fine we would have been more cheerful. 7Springs, lovely place to stay. All the facilities there are really nice. Tree house was more attractive and we missed it. Overall, arrangement was excellent and I would give all 5 starts to DisciverMyTravel for that. #discovermytravel and Specially Mr. Rishi away very active and did everything perfectly. Thanks to u man. Houseboat, Candlelight Dinner, 7Springs Resort.

    FAQ's of Kovalam

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Ayurveda and Yoga should probably be available at your place of stay itself. If not, there are a number of Ayurvedic and Yogic centres on and off the beach. Only go for centres recognised by the Department of Tourism.

    Surfing, wooden boat rides and motor boat rides are some of the activities that can be done. Sunbathing, swimming, herbal body toning massages, special cultural programmes and catamaran cruising are also some of the activities people go for.

    There are many restaurants along the beachfront at Lighthouse Beach. The days catch is usually laid in front of them in the evening for those who like fish. The specialty of the area is Chicken Fry. Fried chicken in a red masala paste with freshly cut chillis. Vegetable sambal, paratha (a richer version of roti), beef fry and fish fry are commonly available.

    Kovalam is about 16 km (20 minutes in a taxi) from Trivandrum which is the nearest railway station and airport to Kovalam. Both taxis and buses are available from there.

    Beaches being the major tourist attractions, Kovalam offers a number of beachside budget resorts which are preferred by tourists from all over the world. Moreover, the city does have plenty of hotels and guest houses as well.
