One of the great delights of the Malabar Coast, the Marari Beach is an idyllic destination for a serene beach vacation. Clear turquoise waters that meet the shimmering golden sands with the coconut palm trees in the background make it about as picturesque as anyone could imagine the appearance of the shore. About 11 km from the city of Alleppey, this beach is a hotspot for fishing activity, deriving its name from the local fishing village Mararikulam, and it has a peaceful and laid back ambience perfect for those looking to relax and unwind by the calming waters.
Along with lounging on the beach with the smell of fresh catches wafting through the air, tourists can also engage in swimming, fishing, deep-sea fishing, cruising the divine backwater canals of Kerala, parasailing, water-skiing, and surfing. Visiting in August gives tourists the exclusive opportunity to view Snake Boat races across the waters. The serenity and quietude on the beach is beyond description, so much so that Marari Beach has been enlisted among the top five hammock beaches of the world by National Geographic Survey. The ambience is rather on the peaceful side with very few sports or activities available. It is mostly meant for nature lovers who are looking for some solitude or to spend some time soaking in the ataraxy and the idyllic setting. The beach reverberates with pristine beauty and is sure to transport you to a haven of natural exquisitivity.
