There is a string of beaches running south from Kovalam
and we refer to these as the southern beaches – Poovar
is the furthest south at about 50 minutes from
Trivandrum Airport. Just south of Poovar is the border
with Tamil Nadu. Staying at a resort along one of these
beaches offers a more ‘exclusive’ experience and if you
want the shops and restaurants of Kovalam it is only a
short distance away.
Please note: The land rises quite steeply in places
along the southern coast, which means that beach access
is not always easy. If you have mobility problem please
ask our advice about suitable hotels.
