Kovalam, Kerala.

Polluted beach
Kovalam is one of the finest beaches on the Indian shores.  Some 13 Km from Trivandrum - the state capital of Kerala. That day when I visited, the sky was overcast and it rained in the evening. The beach is now bearing the signs of environmental pollution. The sands are no more pristine as a layer of black soot is visibly prevalent.
