Kovilpathu is a coastal village in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is located in the Vedaranyam taluk of the Nagapattinam district. Based on the 2001 census in India and numerous village and tsunami censuses after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, it has a population of approximately 2348 people, most of whom are poor and are "low caste." The village's primary businesses, like other villages on the coast of Tamil Nadu, are farming and fishing. The entire Nagapattinam district was severely affected by the Indian ocean tsunamis, however, Kovilpathu emerged virtually unscathed. This was due to the presence of a very large windbreak planted by inhabitants of the region in 2002

As per the 2001 census, Kovilpathu had a total population of 2348 with 1165 males and 1183 females. The sex ratio was 1015. The literacy rate was 81.27.
