Tips for Lighthouse Beach

  • 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.
