Kovalam-The Paradise For Beach Lovers
Flipping through the pages of Srishti, my favorite nature
based magazine, I came across a beautiful quote. It reads, “Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes – every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.” No wonder Mother nature uplifts our souls through its wonderful attractions. I was more than happy as I was in a flight to God’s Own Country, Kerala. Undoubtedly this tourist destination of India needs no introduction. Everybody knows about it, but just knowing is not enough. One must visit this destination if one wishes to experience the beauty of a paradise.
I and my dear friends Shivani and Pallavi landed at Trivandrum airport in the afternoon. After covering a distance of 23 km from the airport I reached the Travancore Heritage Resort in the wonderful Kovalam. It is a beach town located on the western coast of India. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations of Kerala. Tourists from across the globe come here for rejuvenating holidays. There are three beautiful beaches in Kovalam- the Lighthouse beach, the Samudra beach and the Hawah beach.
We were booked in the beach grove guest room which offers overwhelming views of the sea. The resort is designed to blend in with the environment outside. After refreshing ourselves with some snacks and coffee, we set out for the Kovalam beach. As we reached the Lighthouse beach we were greeted by arresting waves, swaying palms, golden sand and cool breeze. What a wonderful feeling it was! Life was completely different here, simple yet sophisticated. And here the sophistication lies in the natural beauty. We enjoyed every moment at the beach. The beauty of sunset left me speechless.
