Azhimala beach

Azhimala is a beach near to Kovalam. It is a very quiet beach. Its slightly more than 20 kms from Trivandrum city. Around 5-6 kms from Vizhinjam. There are lots of Ayurvedic resorts in Azhimala. There is a temple in the name of Azhimala. The temple is very near to the beach. The beach can be viewed from a hill (mala). That’s why its name is Azhimala. The view of the beach from the Azhimala hill is very nice.
