Escape the evening crowds of Chennai on a 4-hour tour to Covelong Beach, and watch the sunset over the Coromandel Coast from the golden sand, enjoy beach sports, and immerse yourself in the serenity of one of the most stunning locations close to the city.
What to Expect
Spend your evening at one of the most beautiful beaches close to Chennai on a 4-hour evening tour to Covelong Beach, and enjoy stunning views of the Bay of Bengal and its picturesque groves.
You will be picked up from your hotel at 15:00 for the drive away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Upon arrival at Covelong, a picturesque fishing village located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of Chennai, admire the fort built by the Dutch in the 18th century.
The port town was developed by the Nawab of the Carnatic, Saadat Ali, before being taken over by the French in 1746. Later it fell into the hands of the British, and the fort was reduced to ruins until it was sensitively restored as a luxury hotel by the Taj Group. The Taj Fisherman's Cove has rekindled the popularity of Covelong Beach, where the sunrise and sunset views are among the best within easy access of Chennai.
Adventure lovers can get their adrenaline fix with a range of available water sport activities, including windsurfing - one of the few places on India’ east coast where it is offered. Those who prefer a more leisurely evening can simply sink their toes in the golden sand, or take a dip in the warm waters of the ocean.
