In the extreme south of Kovalam is the magnificent Lighthouse Beach, decked with the towering Vizhinjam lighthouse, which is built on a rocky headland. Although, tourists are not permitted inside the lighthouse, the memorials of Ayyanappilla Asan around the lighthouse are worth a visit.
The beach is a long, rolling sandy strip, safe guarded by lifeguards along the shore. The lighthouse illuminated forms a picturesque backdrop to enjoy a quiet evening. Fresh, delectable seafood, available along the shore, wraps up the experience with a flourish spread. Transport facilities to the beach are easily available.
