Honeymoon Adventure Nature


While getting to Lighthouse beach, make sure that you are not overcharged by auto drivers/taxi drivers. Bargaining is recommended

There are a number of options available to stay despite Kovalam being fairly small, with a lot of them around Lighthouse Beach as this is the main attraction

As there are a number of beachside spas offering spa treatments, it is advisable to make sure that the place you go to is certified by the Kerala Tourism Department

Be sure to try the exquisite seafood at any of the many beachside shacks and restaurants near Lighthouse Beach

There are lifeguards around on Lighthouse beach and it is a good idea to go swimming or surfing near where they are unless you are very experienced as the waves here are pretty huge

Shopping at the beachfront can be tricky as the shop owners overcharge heavily. Negotiating is strongly advisable

It is also a good idea to check what you are buying as some shops on Lighthouse Beach have been known to sell fake gems and silver items and such

Honeymooners should definitely take a walk down Lighthouse Beach around sunset time as there are very few settings more romantic than that in India or even the world

When indulging in watersports and other such adventure activities here, make sure you pay attention to what the instructors have to say and follow it, especially if you are a beginner.
