<< Kerala Adventure Tourism 

12 kms south of Thiruvananthapuram is one of the finest beaches in Kerala and India, Kovalam providing lots of scope for beach tourism combined with fun and adventure. With the boundless blue of the Arabian Sea and unwinding miles of fine sand washed by surf, which roars and hisses at the feet of coconut palms, the adventure tourism destination of Kovalam is a sheltered natural bay. A sheet of silvery and curve sand is bordered on one side by azure blue water and on the other by a never-ending spread of green palm groves at Kovalam adventure destination. A high rocky promontory jutting into the sea has created a beautiful bay of calm waters for sea bathing.One can do surfing here. One can also sunbathe on the silver sands of the Kovalam beach which offers scope for beach sports as well.
