Check out this beautiful drone video of Kovalam, a seaside town in the south Indian state of Kerala. It lies on the Malabar Coast (as Kerala's coastline on the Arabian Sea is known), just south of the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram. It's been known as a popular beach destination since the 1920's. It gained some prominence in the 1970's when it became part of the so-called Hippie Trail which led from Europe to Sri Lanka. The video includes footage of the Vizhinjam Lighthouse, which was erected in 1972.
