History of Kovalam

The calm and quaint village of Kovalam was first explored by the king of Travancore who retreated to the town quite often for leisure. During the British reign, the King invited his European guests to this enchanting destination who found it impressive and decided to promote tourism in its different locations. However, it was the decade of 1970s when Kovalam received a true boost in terms of tourist activities with the arrival of hippies. Today, the village is a popular haunt amongst the locals and a great spot for vacation.
