Alappuzha Beach

Alappuzha beach also known as Alleppey beach is one of the most popular spots in the district of Alappuzha. An old character-filled pier, about 140 years old, extending into the sea adds to the idyllic charm of this beach. The beach has the Arabian Sea to the west, and an intricate network of lakes, lagoons and several freshwater rivers close by. You can spend some indolent hours in seclusion, soaking up the sun and watching the blue swells crash against a white shore of Alleppey. Alleppey referred to as the Venice of the East by travellers from across the world, this Backwater Country is also home to diverse animal and bird life. By virtue of its proximity to the sea, the town has always enjoyed a unique place in the maritime history of Kerala. Today, Alappuzha has grown in importance as a Backwater Tourist Centre, attracting several thousands of foreign tourists each year. Alappuzha is also famous for its Boat races, Houseboat Holidays, Beaches, Marine Products and Coir Industry.
