The state's first parasailing project has been launched at Hawa Beach, Kovalam, in Thiruvananthapuram. The project was launched by Tourism Minister Mr. Kadakampally Surendran.
“Kovalam is a famed international beach destination. The new facility will give a boost to water sport activities in Kovalam, besides complementing the efforts to develop the state as a major adventure tourism hub,” Minister Mr. Surendran said after launching the activity. The Rs. 2.5-crore project is run by Bond Adventures Pvt. Ltd., which has been offering waterbody-related adventure packages.
Winch parasail boat made in Goa will be used for the activity at the beach and the parasails are manufactured in the UK.
