Kovalam

Famous for the groves of coconut trees from which it takes its name, Kovalam offers a long, white sandy beach on the Arabian Sea.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Lighthouse Beach and Hawa Beach. Visiting Kovalam Beach and Varkala Beach will get you outdoors. Step out of Kovalam with an excursion to Sivagiri in Varkala--about 1h 30 min away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Samudra Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, don't miss a visit to Parasurama Temple Thiruvallam, and look for gifts at Keralashopee.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Kovalam travel itinerary creator.

Kuwait City, Kuwait to Kovalam is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Arabia Standard Time (AST) to India Standard Time (IST), which is usually a 2 hour difference.
