How to Reach Kovalam

How to Reach Kovalam by Air

The Thiruvananthapuram Airport is about 10 Kms away from the tranquil shores of Kovalam. A prepaid taxi is perhaps the best way out of the airport to the fishing village. Charges could range anywhere around Rs 350. Private cabs may charge less but it’s hard to get the right deal. Auto rickshaws at the exit will also end up being equally expensive as the taxis.

Backpackers and those on a shoestring budget can buy an easy ride to Kovalam via the swanky new shuttles launched by KSRTC.

How to Reach Kovalam by Rail

A well laid network of trains connects Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) to various Indian cities. You can take a Trivandrum Express or Trivandrum mail from Chennai Central or opt for the Kanyayakumari Express from Bangalore City Junction. These trains will lead you to the Trivandrum Central, a busy railway station handling a large share of rail traffic to Kerala. Here you will find taxis, buses and autos to reach Kovalam.

Those coming in from Delhi can check the schedule for Kerala Express that runs from the New Delhi Railway Station on a weekly basis. Passengers starting off from Mumbai can hop into the Mumbai-Kanyakumari Express at Chatrapathi Shivaji Railway Terminus.

How to Reach Kovalam by Bus

The neighbouring state departments offer a diverse range of services to Kovalam. Volvos, express and deluxe shuttles and local buses from Bangalore, Mangalore and Chennai serve Trivandrum.

A smart option is to go for rentals. Most drivers take the NH 47 highway from Bangalore which is close to the Shornur Road. If you’re renting a car at Trivandrum, use the Trivandrum Bypass Road for smooth transfers.

Getting Around Kovalam

Kovalam is small enough to cover on foot without much effort. There are local buses for trips out and one can hire two wheelers by posting some security and producing a valid driver’s license.
