The entry ticket fee for Chennai's Kovalam blue flag beach is ₹10, regardless of age or other factors. Though there is no ticket fee for kids under the age of 3. The ticket is provided while walking towards the beach right before check-in. This ticket cannot be bought online.
The beach premises has a large parking space dedicated to both four-wheelers and two-wheelers. See the pictures below.
The parking cost for four-wheeler vehicles such as cars is ₹50 and for motorbikes is ₹20. The parking area is maintained and organized by government officials under Tamil Nadu Tourism. The car parking area is so big to accommodate a lot of vehicles and has a ramp to make it easier for the vehicles to come out from the other end of the parking lot.
This ramp is also used to access the bike parking lot, which is again big enough to house a lot of bikes.
