Marari Beach

Located in the scenic beauty of the Alappuzha district is the Marari Beach, considered as the perfect locale for holidaying with friends and family. The name of the beach was kept after the local village called “Maraikullum” that was located along the coast of the Arabian Sea. The Primary occupation of the inmates of the village is fishing and the beach beauty is extremely serene and calm to spend a splendid time. If you are feeling lost, the beach will surely give you a stimulating experience to be a part of all the activities.

The entire beach is flanked by tall palm trees with golden-hued sand and pristine waters that are enjoyed by the tourists. Despite being a typical beach the aura surrounding the place will mesmerise you. If you visit here in August you will also be able to witness the unique snake boat races and a host of other adventure activities if you love to take it rough.

The beautiful state of Kerala is all about beaches filled with tourists but 
Marari beach helps you go easy as against the fast-paced popular beaches in the state. We all love beaches but popular beaches get pretty crowded and don’t give you the deserved time-off at a relaxing pace. This beach is a peaceful one which will help you unwind your senses and transfer your world. The good old fishing village has simplistic outing arenas for the tourists and the beach is sure to blow your mind away solely for the peace you will experience on your journey.

The beach ambience leads you to follow your own relaxation therapies like yoga and meditation or indulges in the pampering sessions of Ayurveda spa and massage. This also proves to be the appropriate spot to romance your partner with no concern of crowds staring at you. The natural retreat is slowly gaining in popularity with tourists every year increasing. People who love to see how the fishermen fare at the deepest part of the sea can also indulge by turning on their discovery mode.

You can also explore the entire village especially the coir making units or merely opt for coir retail therapy. For those who also seek spiritual liberty can visit umpteen religious attractions near the beach. The beach also provides a safe spot for swimming and is considered a retreat for many water sports activities that are made available.

Every year a good number of overseas tourists come here to relax and experience the rustic nature of the surroundings. If you have planned a Kerala tour then visiting here has to be included. It is a complete change within Kerala. On one hand, you might be enjoying the vibrant beaches in Kovalam and on the other rejoicing in tranquillity and being a witness to some great sights, village dreams and fishing is what will enchant you. Kerala offers both the experiences and what’s better than to sit on the blonde carpet of sand and forget about your busy and hectic life back home.


Alleppey Beach

With tempting natural beauty in its right hand, Alleppey beach of Kerala is a major pull for hundreds of tourists every day, considering its calm shores, golden sands, and alignment of palm trees. The beach is an ultimate picnic spot for locals at one end and a place for relaxation for travelers on another who do not miss to wash their feet, before heading to backwaters and houseboat ride. An age-old sea-extended iron pier adds another charm to it which is a picture perfect location for photographers.

Also known as ‘Venice of the East’, Alappuzha beach is known for hosting events like beach festival, sand art festival and much more that opens up as a gateway to locals. What adds another insta-worthy attraction nearby is an old lighthouse, which reminds one of the needs of sailors.
