Azhimala Beach (Vizhinjam Beach)

Just a short drive from Kovalam is the much quieter, laid back Azhimala Beach. Compared to the hustle and bustle along the coast this is a wonderfully peaceful and natural location.

Gentle waves wash the long stretch of golden sand, and the backdrop is coconut palm trees with the odd cluster of boulders. Instead of a throng of tourists you can watch the local fishermen landing their catch.

Azhimala Beach provides a great getaway from hectic Trivandrum city and a pristine alternative to the seaside resort of Kovalam.

Overlooking the beach is the Azhimala Siva Temple, a great spot for taking in the sunset.
