Goa & Kovalam Holidays

Goa is India’s leading beach destination and has a distinct European flavour and agreeable laid-back vibe. With over 65 miles of coastline dotted with beaches bordering the Arabian Sea this is a veritable sunseekers paradise.

The resort towns of North Goa are a hive of activity with broad sandy beaches, watersports, vibrant markets and a lively nightlife. The epicentre is Calangute, which along with a huge beach has lots to do. In South Goa, particularly around Mobor Beach, the tempo is slower with more luxurious hotels flanking spotless white sands with an interior of coconut groves, jungle and sleepy villages.

Kovalam, once a small fishing village, is Kerala’s most famous beach town and is renowned for its three crescent shaped beaches of golden sands. Lighthouse Beach is the largest and most popular of the three and has a promenade lined with open-air restaurants, bars and shops along with a candy-striped lighthouse at the southern end of the beach; Hawa is often busy with day-trippers, while Samudra is less crowded and has several upmarket resorts and restaurants along with a peaceful, but steep beach where you can glimpse fishermen at work.

Kovalam is also known for its traditional Ayurvedic practices, so be sure to indulge in the wide range of rejuvenating and relaxing treatments, yoga or meditation.
