About the Challenge

Enjoy the views and relaxed coastal culture, explore the fishing village, take a sunset cruise or treat yourself to a rejuvenating Ayurvedic massage or some yoga! The beaches are great for swimming, surfing and other water sports.

Our hotel overlooks the beautiful Lighthouse Beach in Kovalam, easily recognisable by its red and white striped lighthouse – climb the 142 steps to the observation deck for wonderful views of the coast. The hotel’s rooms overlook the sea and facilities include a swimming pool and spa with wellness treatments. The hotel can also organise excursions, including a trip to Cape Comorin, the southernmost tip of the Indian subcontinent.

Detailed Information

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.

Preparing for the Challenge

  • We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.
