Fringed by palm trees, and dotted with small shacks selling all kinds of snacks and knick-knacks, Lighthouse Beach is one of the most frequented spots in Kovalam. Its golden sands and cool breeze rejuvenate the mind and the body. It is especially beautiful during sunrise and sunset, when the weather is much more favourable for a stroll along the coast. Located on top of the palm-covered Kurumkal Hill is a lighthouse. Tourists can climb up a spiral staircase to the top, and enjoy the scenic view from the highest point of the red and white tower. This is one of the best places to get a bird’s eye view of the emerald-blue waters of the Arabian Sea and the surrounding area to the south of Kerala.Over the weekend, the beach gets especially crowded as tourists from the neighbouring cities flock to it in search of relaxation and a quick getaway to the ocean.
