We like to stay at Samudra Beach as it's within easy reach of the busy Lighthouse beaches but a bit quieter and more relaxed. In the morning the fishermen all pull in their huge net and you can watch as the customers turn up to...More

The beach is the other side of light house beach. A little less clean. Too many people comparatively. Can opt for visiting other beaches rather.

A real little gem - A lovely quiet beach with a handful of sunbeds for hire and a few restaurants and drinks stalls.

We preferred this to lighthouse beach as it was nice and quiet but as with everywhere else in the area was so upset at the amount of plastic floating about in the sea.

Enjoyed this place. Got here by auto rickshaw from the main Kovalam tourist area but it’s an easy enough walk along the coast - 30 mins. Beach is clean, you can sit for a cold drink and enjoy the ocean views and there are locals...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.
