The tiny beaches of Kovalam are a popular destination, yet still maintain an air of calm.

Relaxation

Relax on the warm palm-fringed sands, rejuvenate your senses with some ayurvedic treatments, or wander along the headland. Standing at the old lighthouse you can watch the sky and waters burn as the sun sets over the Arabian Sea.

Kathakali performance

In the evening you may like to attend a kathakali performance, Kerala's traditional form of drama.
