Beautiful Beach

Kovalam Beach is a great place to spend a few days relaxing after some hard weeks of traveling! There lots of fresh fruit & seafood available

Local Fisherman

The local fisherman are very friendly. Not much English though so i tried a few phrases in Malaylam.

Kovalam Sunsets

Being on the West Coast of India Kovalam gets spectacular sunsets. I enjoyed watching the sun melt into the sea each evening!

    An excellent account of your long-ago adventure in southern India! You make it look very inviting - I am seriously tempted to sample some of these out of the way Indian places!
