House Boat Sockets

by YorkshireGlenn

Hi all, Wer'e goining to Kovalam in March and would like to go on a houseboat overnight. However I have sleep apnea and need to use a CPAPs machine plugged into an electric socket...question is do the houseboats have electric sockets? Any Info greatfully received. thanks

Re: House Boat Sockets

by dshorto

No problem with sockets, they virtually all have A/C anyway and keep it running all night if you ask them. I also use a CPAP and went on a houseboat last August. If you get the chance to visit some of the little village communities along the minor backwaters in a small boat or local canoe that's a lot of fun; take a load of cheap biros to throw to the kids who run along the bank crying "one pen", "one pen"! Makes their day, and yours.

When you book your houseboat tell them you need electric as some of the smaller single room ones are punted and have no engine let alone an electric socket,the last time we actually requested one without power for the peace and tranquility of it, one guy at the front with a punt pole, one guy at the rear with a punt pole, one guy as a dedicated chef, no noise except nature... bliss.

Normally most of the houseboats are motorised and using yamaha genrators for electrifying the boat.Rooms are well appointed as a hotel room. Please check weather you are using Non Air conditioned or Airconditioned houseboat. Please double check kovalam is a beach destination. Please choose either Alleppy or Kumarakom for backwater cruise. Popular backwater cruise routes are

Alleppy-Kumarakom
Alleppy-Thottapally
Alleppy Round

Please send me an email if you need more details about kerala

Warm regards,

Travel Tips for Kovalam

Quaint

by paul-motley

Whilst several shacks on the main run at Lighthouse beach have recently been added the location is still primarily a fishing village. Commercialised by Indian standards but still almost undiscovered at present especially in comparison to Goa. The location attracts generally a 30 plus tourist of perhaps a wealthier background to Goa which unfortunately makes the prices slightly inflated but still a fraction of the cost of the UK. The locals are generally nice genuine people who always have a smile for you and beggars are relatively few.

Music & Snacks

by wrldtravler about Beatles

Run by a Goan, Beatles is the closest place to a bar on the lighthouse beach. The place tends to play older rock music but it's popular with the toruists and the food is average.
The Beatles did vist Kovalam in the 1960's, but have no affiliation to the establishment. Pizza and Beer.

Rocky outcrop

by tim07

Where the beaches of Hawa and Lighthouse meet there is a rocky outcrop. Standing on the rocks you get magnificent full length views of both beaches. The rocks are also a popular place for people to gather and watch the sun setting.

Truly Gods own Country

by paul-motley

"My Introduction To India."

Ever since about 1988 myself and my friend who’s family originates from Indian have promised ourselves a visit to Indian, at the time we were both going through a divorce and promised ourselves the holiday we always wanted at that tome work and finances prevented us at that time (packages the were a lot dearer to long haul destinations). We thought years ago that when we did go it would be a visit to Goa probably due to our own ignorance of the Indian holiday destinations. Now many years on and with our new partners we have done it but have chosen the less commercialised Kovalam in the State of Karela. Whilst Kovalam is now almost a tourist village it has still kept its charm, lets us not confuse tourist village with the tourist likes of Spain etc. Whilst by Indian standards poverty is almost non existence, it is a very basic place but with very friendly people. Nobody has the luxuries that have spoiled the UK but people are happy and content and without attitude. All the money in the world cannot buy happiness and people make their own lives, children are cheerful, adults always have a smile and the time of day for you. Other nations could learn a lot from the culture in this area. Had we realised many years ago how economical it is to go to India we would have done it years ago, yes it is slightly more expensive to book the holiday but it is very much offset by the meagre amount you can spend in the country itself.

"Shopping trip to Keralas Capital "Trivandrum""

Trivandrum is the Capital city of Kerala and is about 15KL away from Kovalam, a mere rickshaw ride which I think was in the region of £2 there and back. Items are cheaper here than Kovalam which is aimed at the Western wallet. Visit the large department store of I think Parthas or a name similar, if you want a quality suit made the tailor outside of the store will measure you and advise how much cloth, buy it in the store and let him make a suit from your chosen cloth. The traffic is very busy, there are traffic lights by the bus terminal but I don’t think anybody knows what they are there for.
