Here, we will talk about the best beaches in Kerala that you should visit while you are there. Have a look!
Kovalam Beach is the right place to find all the action in the state. It is one of the most developed and most popular beaches in Kerala. Often compared to Goa’s Baga Beach and Calangute Beach, Kovalam is located very near to the capital, Trivandrum. This beach is made up of two main coves, Hawa and Lighthouse Beach. The lighthouse beach is the biggest and busiest one and boasts a promenade of open-aired restaurants. The beach is also one of the best surfing destinations in India. And if you are looking for somewhere a little more secluded, then you can find the nearby Samudra beach a better option for you.
With amazing ambience and facilities, Varkala Beach is one of the best beaches in Varkala town. Every year a huge number of tourists visit the beach but still, it remains less crowded than Kovalam and the scenery is awe-inspiring. The beach is peppered with shacks and shops and is located at the bottom of a long stretch of cliff. Hike up to the top of the cliff and enjoy an amazing view of the ocean or relax at the beach while reading a book. Varkala beach is incredibly romantic and visitors from India and beyond enjoy spending relaxed days here.
