Photographer's Note

Kovalam is famous for its beaches extremely popular among westerners due to shallow waters and low tidal waves. It is also one of the oldest tourist enclaves in India, a well known part of the tourist circuit since the 1930s. Kovalam shots into the limelight in the early 1970s with the arrival of masses of hippies. That started the transformation of a casual fishing village of Kerala into one of the most important resort. Kovalam has 3 major beaches in its 17 km coastline. The southernmost, known as the Lighthouse beach is the most popular of the three. Source : https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Kovalam
