Covelong holidays

Covelong is a small fishing settlement located to the south of Chennai. It was originally a port built by Saadat Ali, Nawab of Carnatic and it was here that the French General Laboudonnais landed his troops in 1746. In 1752 the port was taken by Clive and destroyed. Today Covelong is known for its fine beach which is separated from the mainland by the canal running from Chennai to Mahabalipuram.
