Southern India Beaches

The three states of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have between them over 1,800kms of coast. It should be no surprise, then, that southern India has lots of wonderfully photogenic beaches, some of which stretch for several kilometers and are backed by swaying coconut palms. They’re the sort of beaches you’d close your eyes and picture. They offer great opportunities for sunbathing, swimming and all manner of watersports. You’ll also be able to go for romantic sunset cruises and enjoy strolls along the strand.

Some of our favourites in Kerala on the southwest coast include Samudra, a long beach, where you can watch the waves dashing themselves on to the rocks and Kovalam, which is made up of three curved beaches sheltered by a promontory, ideal for swimming. Lying north of Kerala, Karnataka has over 300kms of coastline and some of the loveliest beaches in the country, popular with locals and visitors alike. In Tamil Nadu, which covers the far southeast coast and the southern tip of India, Mamallapuram is just 60kms from Chennai. You’ll see some stunning sunrises and sunsets here and can take boat trips to glimpse submerged temples. Magical.
