Thank you.

cat navy 4251) Are we on the right road for Kovalam?
2) Are we on the right road to Kovalam?

Strictly speaking, (2) implies that there are multiple roads to Kovalam, only one of which is "right" in the context. If you don't mean this, (1) is better. However (2) could in practice be used to mean the same as (1).

cat navy 4251) I am at the table.
2) I am by the table.

There can be an overlap. Where there is a difference, (1) implies that that you are doing some activity, or ready for some activity, that will involve using the table, e.g. sitting down eating a meal, while (2) can be more about just using the table as a way of describing about your location.
