This changes the Kovalam from a casual fishing village to important tourist destination in the country.
Kovalam attracts the public when the queen of Travancore Maharani Sethu Lakshmi Bai decided to build a palace for herself at the rock top near the beach. It is known as Haylcon Castle. Any way later on 1936 HH Karthika Thirunal chooses this palace for her honeymoon with her newlywed husband, Prince GV Raja. It was GV Raja who found the tourist potentiality of the region and decided to promote state guests. He then started accommodation for his European guest in Kovalam Haylcon Palace. As a result the beach became famous among the European bureaucrats who were staying in the Madras providence. Thus that movement laid foundation to the Tourism industry in Kovalam.
