Located at one of the largest and nicest beaches of south india lies your idyllic destination, an indian fishing village. It is hidden within a huge plantation of coconut trees (which you can naturally have any time provided that you can climb a tree) where the major proportion of local people make their livings from fishing, almost as their ancestors did.
Stroll through the main road and experience life in india within a community of friendly locals. You should not miss this experience. Just relax on this great beach, which is just a minutes' walk away from home. Buy food on the local markets, cook for yourself or just join in with your local host family for an authentic taste, or drop by a local Indian food stall, if you dare...
If you cannot exist without your western life style, there is a choice of nice restaurants which offer a great variety of food for any European taste. Only a short cab ride away is the fancy tourist destination of Kovalam, where you can find the typical seaview restaurant promenade as you know it from major beach places. Also, there is a variety of shops where you can get anything from indian kitsch to qualty antiques. A longer ride brings you to Kerala's capital city Trivandrum, which is always great for a daytrip and shopping tour.
