Located 16 Kms from the capital of Kerala is a city with four sandy bays called Kovalam. The meaning of Kovalam is “groove of coconut trees”. It is a beach resort. The prominent beach resort in 1930's broke the trammels and emerged as the most magnificent tourist attraction in the south. In earlier days it was just a heaven and not a lot of tourists, but then it was modernized as a great tourist spot and then there was no retrospection. The four sandy beaches are just a sight of heaven; all the four bays are classified by rocks.
