Fisherman's Cove at Kovalam Beach Mahabalipuram offers a wide choice of accommodation. Guests can choose from a range of rooms with gorgeous views of the palm-fringed beach, lapped by the waters of the Bay of Bengal. The hotel also has a number of cottages set amongst palm trees on the beach.

One of the better of the relatively bare-bones guesthouses in town, Green Woods lives up to its name, with the refurbished house's rooms surrounding potted plants, trees, and shrubs. Rooms have few amenities—you'll want to bring a top sheet, towel, and toiletries, or buy them on Othavadai Street. In return, you get a very good value, the beachfront a stone's throw away, and friendly, family-run management.

happy medium between the more expensive beach resorts outside of town and the bare-bones backpacker spots, the Mamalla Beach resort is popular with Indian tourists as well as foreigners. Rooms are fairly large and comfortable; the buffet at the vegetarian restaurant Golden Palette is a good place for Indian classics, and at Rs. 95 it's also a good deal.
