Concrete Killing Kovalam Beach – NDTV Report

June 5, 2009

The third in the NDTV series “India’s Dying Beaches’ features Kerala’s famous Kovalam Beach, where sand has given way to concrete in just three years. Resorts, spas and eateries – all constructed illegally – as well as illegal sand mining, have resulted in 386 out of 591 kilometres (over 65%) of Kerala’s coastline covered in seawall (rocks) instead of sand.
