Kovalam Weather And Best Time To Visit Kovalam
As a beach town, Kovalam has pleasant weather all round the year and is extremely popular among tourists. The beaches here are pristine with mesmerizing white sands and clear waters. Each season has a different experience to offer in Kovalam. To pick which season works best for you, here's a detailed account of the weather in Kovalam and the best time to visit this beach town of Kovalam.
Summers in Kovalam (March to May)
Owing to the hot and humid climate of the coastal area, summer isn’t the ideal time for tourists eager to enjoy the sandy beaches. However, it is the best time for travellers looking to cut their expenses on accommodation. With temperatures rising over 37 degree Celsius, the rooms of many hotels remain empty as the number of tourists visiting Kovalam drastically goes down during the summer months of March to May. Lots of sunscreen and a beach umbrella are a must carry if you plan to hit the beach during this time.
Monsoon in Kovalam (June to September)
Monsoons are not the ideal time to be at the beach in Kovalam due to heavy incessant rains. The temperatures during this season vary between 23 degree Celsius at night and 33 degree Celsius during the day. As with the rest of Kerala, monsoons do bring their own charm to Kovalam with lush green scenery everywhere. This is a good season for travellers looking to save a few bucks with great deals on offer due to the dwindling tourist population.
Winters in Kovalam (October to February)
The months between October to February are most popular with travellers visiting Kovalam. The temperatures during these winter months range between 20 degree Celsius and 30 degree Celsius, fairly pleasant for enjoying a good vacation. Tourist activity resumes full throttle after the slow monsoons. Water sports including scuba-diving, snorkeling and boat riding are fully operational and safe during this period. A special time to visit Kovalam is during Christmas. Throughout the last week of December and the first week of January, the town is filled with carnivals and festivities which add to the magical experience of Kovalam.
