Also known as the 'Venice of the East', this beach is the main one of the city and known for the boat rides and entertainment on the bridge. There is also a century old lighthouse and the coir industry flourishes here. Presently, one of the most popular places for picnic by tourists, the Alleppey Beach is just beautiful. It is a strange fact how even after so many people coming here, the beach remains so clean but it is so. The pier here is a 137 year old one and the Kettuvallam boats are worth taking a ride here. Kettuvalams are very old types of rice carrying boats and the name came down from the fact that the boats were made by only tying knots of coir here.In the backwaters areas, the Kettuvalams are the renovated ones, but in the beach part these are absolutely authentic. houseboat cruises are also popular here.
