Situated away from Kovalum centre and Lighthouse beach, small scale area with some shops and restaurants. Some restaurants have been recommended in Trip Advisor but when we visited they were open but empty and lacking any character. Beach was clean and safe and very quiet,

This is one of the famous beach. There are some big resort near to this beach like Taj resort, Uday samudra and many. This beach is not safe for bath. Tide of this beach is very high.

This is the part of Kovalam beach where speed boats start. Just beside Hawa beach. More people are here. Many premium hotels are located here.

You can reach Samudra beach from boat service. Normally people take a back water trip including a trip to the beach. Backwaters and Sea meets nearby and its another kind of experience. Beach is good but closes after sunset.

It is an unfortunate beach. Gets less appreciation than it deserves on account of being right opposite two of the best beaches in the country - Kovalam and Lighthouse beach. Samudra is a good beach.

It was fun to stop by with my kid and it's quite safe with life guard nearby. The beach is clean and lots of space for playing frisbee or collecting sea shells

We stayed at the Samudra for 5 nights on a B&B basis. Initially we were delighted. The room was spacious and (on the face of it) clean, cool, comfortable and with a great view from the balcony of the hotel grounds and beach beyond. However...More

It appears you are confusing beach itself with some park. There is no park as such. There is only samudra beach and it is public beach, free for all. Hope it helps.
