Covelong is a fishing settlement 37 km south of Chennai and 24 km north of Mamallapuram. Here an ancient fort has been converted into the Taj Group’s luxurious Fisherman’s Cove Resort. Nearby is the equally excellent MGM Beach Resort.

Further south and just 15 km before Mamallapuram is the Crocodile Bank. This successful breeding farm augments the crocodile population of India’s wildlife sanctuaries.
