The beach in the early morning is found crowded with native fishermen who rely completely on the sea for their living. Chanting and singing of these people in their local language along with the cadenced waves create a great acoustic treat for the visitors here. Hawa beach is separated from other beaches by the foreland of Edakkalu. From here, you can get the majestic view of sunset at its apex grace. After the sun sets, the calm cove of waters in the beach provides a visual charm of moonlit nights.

Though Kovalam can be visited at any time of the year,the best time to visit Kovalam is relative. It depends enterly on your purpose of visit. September to March is considered as the ideal time to visit Kovalam.

And for Ayurveda therapies, monsoon is the perfect time, as the pores in skin remain open during this period which is inevitable for the more effective Ayurveda treatments.
