    Kovalam, the Holiday Destination

    Kerala, the paradise on Earth, attracts many people from all over the world. It is a favourite picnic spot for many people. Kerala honeymoon tour is also very famous among the newly wed. One among the many destinations in Kerala is Kovalam.

    Kovalam is a renowned beach that has three crescent adjacent beaches. It has been a favorite destination for tourists right from the Europeans since 1930s. A beautiful bay of calm waters for sea bathing has been created by a massive rocky promontory. It is an ideal place for nature lovers and offers plenty and diverse leisure options. Some of the attractions are sunbathing, swimming, herbal body toning massages, special cultural programs and catamaran cruising. Foreigners have a nice time taking a sun bath in the tropical sun here, that acts very fast and gives a faint blush of coppery tan on the skin. There are a string of budget cottages, Ayurvedic health resorts, convention facilities, shopping zones, swimming pools, Yoga and Ayurvedic massage centres in the beach complex.

    One can also visit the city of Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala, which is about 16 km away from Kovalam. There are many other interesting places in Thiruvananthapuram, like the Napier Museum, the Sri Chitra Art Gallery, the Padmanabhaswamy temple, Ponmudi hill station etc. SMSM institute, which is the state owned handicrafts emporium, is an ideal place for shopping ethnic curios and the like. One can visit Thiruvananthapuram and Kovalam all through the year, but the months from September to March are ideal for visit.

    September to March is the best time to visit kovalam. In Winter time starting from November to February are good temperature varying from 16C to 34C. It is the best time to enjoy at the beach and water related activities in Kovalam.
    During Summers which is on March to May are hot and the temperature varies from a minimum of 20C to a maximum of 36C. Due to hot climate, most tourists avoid travelling in summer.
    June to August Monsoon time are accompanied by thunderstorms and abundant rain falls. Monsoon days are enjoyable for ayurvedic treatments and holidaying within the resorts.
    Monsoon season is the best period for Ayurvedic treatments in Kovalam, Post monsoon season is good for basking in the sun. October to February is the ideal time as temperatures remains cool, making it perfect for sightseeing and basking in the sun.
