The majestic coastline that lovingly kisses Kerala is one of the most-favoured destinations for beach lovers. The beautiful beaches dotted with palm trees, are frequented by tourists who love the crystal clear waters just as much as the amazing lighthouses that are found here. A vacation in one of your preferred beaches is probably the best way to unwind and rejuvenate.
Among the many well-known beaches of Kerala, Kollam offers the finest view of the Arabian Sea and happy memories of the glorious sunrise and sunset will be remain etched in your memory forever.
Another favourite among tourists is the simply breathtaking palm-fringed Alappuzah Beach. If you are in the mood to do nothing, but relax, this quaint little paradise is the perfect destination for you. The Kanwatheertha Beach is one of the less-explored beaches of Kerala; it is truly a virgin territory waiting to be explored by the sun worshippers. Kovalam needs no introduction as this is the most popular beach of the state. Those who love the sun, sand and surf will find ample activities to keep themselves charged, such as snorkelling, swimming and cycling. And those who don’t want to do anything, can laze around and indulge in some ayurvedic massages by professional masseurs by the beach.
The Varkala Beach in Kerala has the northern and the southern parts. There is nothing much to see in the southern area except a Hindu temple. Most tourists throng the northern part which is carefully positioned at the bottom of a cliff. The Kozhikode beach is known for its amazing sunsets; they are the best and it will be a shame to miss them. The horizon takes on the riot of colours from the setting sun and provides the most amazing view. The picture-perfect view of the sea along with the lovely sunset will make you yearn for more.
The Kappil beach has still retained some of its freshness and charm and this unique combination makes it a favourite among those who look for some solitude. The scenic beauty of the place cannot be described in words; the experience needs to be absorbed. The Chavakkad beach in Trissur district is still secluded from tourist intrusion; however, there are quite a few prominent features of this beach, the most famous being the estuary where the rivers merge with the sea.
If you are putting up an itinerary for Kerala, you cannot miss some of these amazing beaches which give a distinctive characteristic to the coastline of Kerala.
