Just three kilometers from Kovalam has a completely different life, without endless hotels cafes and shops. Life is much more than the poor but for its beauty and special flavor.

Welcome to Vizhindzham!

Port is parking for dozens or even hundreds of boats, most of those that form at night in the sea at Kovalam glowing belt.
