Lighthouse Beach, Kovalam, Kerala
The Lighthouse beach at Kovalam is an icon rather a synonym to beaches of south India. Kovalam Beach has been a hotspot for tourists since pre-independence. Mainly sought for its calm waters which is perfect for swimming and its expanse of soft sand ideal for idling and sun bath.
The red and white lighthouse tower perched on a rock crop permits visitors to spiral their way up to the zenith and offers a stunning view of the Arabian Sea and the area surrounding it. A must visit beach if you are in the south of India.
