બેંગલોરથી માત્ર 400 કિમી દૂર કેરળમાં બેકલ બીચ આવેલો છે. આ જગ્યાનો બીચ ટ્રેક ભારતનો સૌથી સુંદર બીચ ટ્રેક માનવામાં આવે છે. અહીં ટ્રેકિંગ સમયે ખૂબ સુંદર નજારાઓ જોવા મળે છે: માછીમારોના ગામડા, રમણીય બેકવોટર્સ, સફેદ રેતી ધરાવતો દરિયાકિનારો તેમજ નયનરમ્ય સનસેટ.
2. Bekal Beach : For a Dramatic SunsetBekal Beach is a well-maintained spot and is devoid of littering and plastic. While I went there without much expectation, ended up spending a beautiful sunset there.
2. Bekal Beach Trek, KeralaLocated in Kasargod, Bekal is an unexplored beach on the sandy shores of the Lakshwadeep sea. It is situated at a distance of about 400 km from Bangalore. The area is a popular locale for shooting film scenes in Bollywood and Tollywood. The beautiful trek gives you a multi-terrain experience in just one day as the trail features a beach, backwaters and a fishing village. It features in the best beach treks in the country.
The trip was at the last stage now and we moved out of Payyanur towards the northern town of Kasaragod. The main aim was to visit the Bekal fort and the Bekal beach. Dominated by resorts, Bekal had only two options for budget travellers like us. We finally took the motel near the flyover. A pre-dominantly Muslim town but they let the tourists be and we didn't encounter many awkward stares as we had expected.The Bekal Fort has a lovely architecture and a brilliant placement out into the sea. I had seen the Aguada Fort in Goa but this is something spectacular. (Read my Goa blogs here : North Goa and South Goa)Kerala never did end actually, for all of us. The windowless buses, the cheap public ferries, the backwaters, the tea-gardens, the mountains, the beaches, the spice plantations, the forests and the spirit of Kerala. I can hardly find words to explain what this state does to you. It's magical.
