Fringed by headlands that rise steeply above the shore, Kovalam Beach is almost completely covered by coconut palms. Of the three small bays separated by rocky outcrops, the southern-most, known as the Lighthouse Beach, is the most popular. The lovely old lighthouse that gives the beach its name is the Vizhinjam Lighthouse. Edakallu, a rocky headland, separates Eve’s or Howah Beach from the Lighthouse Beach. The hill that separates Howah Beach from the third of Kovalam’s celebrated beaches houses the Government Guest House and the Halcyon Castle. One of Kovalam’s spectacular landmarks, this charming old castle adds to the beauty of the setting.
