Another tuk tuk ride of about 30 minutes to Samudra Beach, the next beach around from Kovalam. A quiet little beach with the hotel just a building away from the water.
David went for a swim and got dumped when he was getting out by waves breaking right on the shore.

... Trivandrum so we knew we wouldn't miss it. Because of the delays we guestimated that we'd be arriving about 5 p.m. But before we knew it we'd stopped at half 2 and were told to get off. This was the end of the line! We didn't know where we were but got accosted pretty quickly by a tuk tuk driver. We quizzed him and found out we were only 9 km from Trivandrum.
