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

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

This is not a beach in the same way Kovalam or Lighthouse beach is a beach. Samuarda beach is a short drop, some large rocks (+ litter) then the sea (which was rough when we visited in March). I believe it used to be a...More

The beach is a quiet place perfect for a romantic sunset and for a good dinner. There are restaurants with tables directly on the shore and no people passing by. For swimming or for children is the beach not suitable because of the rocks. I...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.
