Kappil Beach

Located about 6 km away from the Bekal Fort, this is one of the cleanest and unpolluted beahes of the region. If you are the one who prefers seclusion more than the crowd, this should be a perfect beach for you over the rest of the beaches. This place is however becoming a favourite location for tourist with every passing day the Kodi Cliff nearby serves as a watchpoint for tourists. From here you can get awesome views of the Arabian Sea and the surroundings too. The views of the Pallikunnam Temple, which is about 2 km away can also be enjoyed from this cliff. Besides, you can also enhoy small picnics and lazy strolls along the beach.

Kappil beach was our obvious choice as it was nearby and less crowded to have a peaceful stay @ the beach

Kappil Beach is an ideal destination for those who crave solitude. You can laze around here or hike to a small hillock, Kodi Cliff, for some spectacular views. Only 12km from the main town, Kappil Beach is a revered place for those seeking relaxation without the cries of hawkers and throngs of tourists. It is also one of the cleanest and most pollution-free beaches of Kerala.

There is a sidewalk built on the cliff which allows a scenic walk for about 90mins towards the north, passing Odayam, Eddava, Black Beach and Kappil Beach. If you're lucky you can get a thrilling view of adventure enthusiasts paragliding from the cliff or catch a glimpse of dolphins swimming together. You can get around by boat from the beach to get a view of the dolphins too! Overall, Varkala allows you to surround yourself with crystal clear water and white sand and experience total relaxation as the afternoon sun kisses your skin and the cool breeze blows gently through your salt-sprayed hair.

On the north side of the cliff is the Evada beach and Black beach. One of the cleanest beaches as they have not been explored much. The black beach has very soft black sand. Further north is the Kappil beach, where sea and backwaters run parallel divided by a more-than-one km of straight road. Perfect place for sunbathing and swimming. The Priyadarshini Boat Club here offers boating facilities.

One can hire a scooter and explore around too. As soon as you get away from Varkala head north towards Kappil Beach where the coast meets the backwaters or drive south along authentic fishing villages and miles of undeveloped coastline until you reach Anjengo Fort - one of the oldest in India. Head inland to visit Ponnumthuruthu Island where a temple nestles on a serene island in a palm tree lined backwater lake.

Kappil BeachThis beach boasts of great natural beauty, and to top it all , it is also secluded. Kapil Beach attractsmany visitors who have the option of swimming in the beautiful and shallow waters or just relax and sunbathe. For those who are easily bored of those things, there is also an exciting trek to the Kodi Cliff, which is located in the vicinity. Once there, one can cherish an expansive and picturesque view of the Arabian Sea.

An off-road from the Varkala-Paravur road bordered by the beach on one side and a lake on the other. During monsoons, the beach and the lake coalesce at a point to form a single body which makes it highly dangerous for a swim during this time
Bhavya Murthy
This is a kind of lagoon, where sea and backwaters running parallel divided by a more-than-one km of straight road. There is also an estuary that connect the sea with the backwaters here. Very scenic, and should be on your must visit list. ;)

Kovalam is made up of three coves, which are Hawa Beach, Lighthouse Beach, and Samudra Beach. Kovalam is situated a distance of 16km from Thiruvananthapuram. Kovalam is one of the more popular beach destinations in Kerala. The most popular amongst the beaches here would be the Lighthouse Beach which always has a large number of tourists visiting it. The Lighthouse at this beach atands tall at a majestic 35km.

We were a group of nine people so we decided to camp on the Kappil beach. As it was hot, we decided not to pitch tents and chose sleeping bags instead. Sleeping under the night sky watching the stars and listening to the sound of waves crashing the shore is one ‘Out of the world’ feeling.P.S- If you a solo girl traveler, I advise you not to camp on the beach as it might not be safe.

There is nothing like enjoying sunset on the beach. A part of the Kappil beach is taken up by Taj for their beach resort. Walk ahead to the other side of the Kappil beach. You are allowed to camp on this beach. On the way to Bekal fort, I had seen a huge hoarding about a traditional dance performance which was to happen that day. Before coming to this place, I had done my research and had basic idea of this dance ritual called THEYYAM. After the sunset we walked to the main road and took an auto to reach the temple in Kasaragod where this performance was happening.
