crashing waves on beach Kovalam in india

Melt into mystical Kerala

Kerala is a pretty irresistible province with a deliciously slow pace and stacks of tropical sunshine. The beaches are breezy, wild and exotic, with caramel sands slipping into crystal clear waves. While Kovalam itself has been slightly overrun by tourism, there are several small and beautiful bays just begging to be explored. Try an Ayurvedic massage overlooking the ocean and eat deliciously spiced seafood.

Get tropical in Goa

Goa is a tiny Portuguese pocket of paradise that’s easy to fall for and tricky to leave. The sun-kissed beaches give way to the clear waters of the Indian Ocean, cows patrol the shoreline at sunset and the spiced seafood is simply to die for. Behind the beaches, you’ll find romantic colonial mansions buried between banana plantations and sparkling blue lagoons. Stay in a quirky dome hut, a boutique resort or a heritage hotel.

Relax in idyllic Marari

Marari is a charming fishing village with an idyllic and tranquil beach, the perfect place to end your India trip. You’ll stay in a peaceful bungalow on the beach, set amongst tropical gardens where you can kick back in your hammock reading a book, take a dip in the sea or sunbathe by the pool. Pure bliss!
