More about the Kitesurfing holiday in India; On this trip we offer our guests a complimentary airport transfer on arrival (Day 1) at Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) Airport to our hotel in Kovalam beach which is in the state of Kerala. We find the first night halt in Kovalam necessary to get guests oriented with the way of life in India, the food, the culture & environment. Kovalam beach is a nice tourist cove where there are many beach front cafe’s, bars & restaurants to pave your way into India. We do not include any meals on the first day since there is so much to choose from! The next day (Day 2) we leave early morning for a drive to our secret spot, enroute visiting the temple on the southern most tip of India (you will be looking up north at the ice cream cone) at Kanyakumari. We have the option of taking a ferry boat ride to the massive statue of ‘Swami Vivekananda’. The drive from Kovalam to our Kitesurfing location is around 3 hours following the coastal roads with interesting stops for photographs & understanding the culture/way of life of local residents in villages. On arrival you are greeted by the local residents who share a wealth of information about the area; its history, architecture, local customs & the Kitesurfing spots in the area. We host you for the next few days at this comfortable heritage accommodation property with great support from the friendly staff (Day 2 to Day 5) all meals will be served in the common dining area. A healthy spread for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner with a mix of local cuisine with fresh fruit, juice & continental. Local cuisine has a variety of preparations with rice in various textures served with coconut & garlic chutney, really worth trying. Your rooms are on twin share basis with plenty room to store all your gear. During your stay we have an optional included trip (Day 3) to another Kitesurfing location which is an approx 2 hour drive. The kitesurf day trip gives you a chance to see the countryside & get involved with local fisher folk in their daily duties or just kitesurf at a different spot to get a feel for various conditions. We leave our favorite spot post lunch (Day 6) & drive to Kovalam beach accomodation for the night. Our trip ends post breakfast the next day (Day 7)
