|Kerala is a good example of how a place with great attributes has come to be perceived as a great place to visit. The National Geographic Traveler has selected Kerala as ‘one of the 50 must see destinations of a lifetime’ among its millennium destinations. Kerala has gained a place among world destinations and become the most preferred tourist destination in India by virtue of the stunning backwaters, hill stations, impossible greenery, a range of Ayurvedic massages, great beaches, food and culture.
Some of India’s finest beaches are in Kerala. The Kerala coast is lined with unspoilt sandy beaches and offers the perfect setting for a relaxing beach holiday away from the crowds.
The beaches provide ample scope for relaxing in the sun for that sexy tan. Frolic in the sand, swim in tropical waters, converse with the local fisherman, buy fresh catch, take it to the seaside vendor and get the fish cooked for you. In the evening, admire the kaleidoscopic view of the sunset, enjoying a romantic candle-lit dinner in the many open air seashore restaurants that dot the beaches.
In the night, stroll along the beaches with the cool, saline breeze blowing on the coconut groves along the coastal hamlets, bringing a whiff of village life. By the virtue of having most of India’s finest beaches, Kerala offers you surfing, spice and sand like no other place.
Among the beautiful beaches in God’s Own Country are Kovalam, Varkala, Sankumukham, Vizhinjam, Alappuzha, Kappadu, Payyambalam and Bekal.
