2. Kerala: A great favourite among young couples, Kerala is a surreal beauty located in the southern part of the country. Home to the mystical backwaters, Kerala is a pristine natural beauty, with its sprawling golden beaches, gently swaying coconut trees and lush green foliage. The delicious food of Kerala is a delight on the palate and is a must when in the region. Kerala during monsoons is a sight to behold, with the pouring rain providing a rather enchanting backdrop. Without a doubt, Kerala is one of the best monsoon destinations in India.

Day 5 - VarkalaDrive from Alleppey to Varkala will take around 4 hours so start early as this beach by far is the most beautiful calm and secluded place of all. The moment I saw the water I wanted to dive in, this place has a feel of its own, the sacks round they have given a Italian Tibetan western sort of feel, those handicraft shops music stores food and the sun will do it all. This is the place to unleash yourself eat good and just relax, by evening head towards Kovalam and plan to stay there for a day or two.
The next day proved to be rather an interesting one that had a very mundane start. The industry that we visited was FACT, a fertiliser plant in Kerala. The visit was quickly wrapped up in an hour and we all left for the Cherai beach. The beach is an hour and a half ride from the hotel, which we spent dancing and singing in the bus. The sea welcomed us with its pleasant temperature and beautiful view and we wasted no time in running into the water. The beach took up the whole evening as we enjoyed ourselves immensely.The faculty then decided to take us to the “Marine Drive of Cochin”, a smaller version of Mumbai’s marine Drive. It was serenely lit and was bustling with crowds as a group of 100 enlarged the crowd further. We returned to the hotel and prepared ourselves for a long travel the next morning to Munnar.October 4, 2013
This is a shallow beach just by the Bekal Fort and is the one which has been developed by the Tourism Department over here. This is now an exotic location for tourists and also the most visited place in Kasaragod. There are all sorts of facilities here including waste bins and toilets. There is a children's park for the little ones to enjoy and there are also shady areas and tree houses for you to rest. To make the beach even more beautiful two laterite statues of Theyyam have been built here by artists from Neelambur too. Apart from these facilities, the beach is very nicely lit up during the evenings to make it look beautiful as well as to let the tourists enjoy the place even during the hours after sunset.

This beach is where the river meets the sea and thus is the most beautiful place to visit in Kannur. The clean sands and foamy white waters of the sea are mesmerizing and lovely to relax. You can also enjoy a lazy, romantic walk along the beach or even arrange for a romantic date or a family picnic here. The holiday resorts line up the shores and give very attractive views of the seas and beyond. The swaying casuarinas and palms provide for the perfect green content. This place is the most recommended on your visit to the place.
After researching so many places to spend two days in Kerala we landed up in this heavenly location in June 2015. The name of our stay was Paradise resort and it Truly was one.My husband, although a native of Kerala had not done any sightseeing in our land, he was brought up in Mumbai. On that note, myself having lived in Kerala for 20+ years since birth had never seen Kumarakom before. So in all ways, we were so excited about this journey.We decided not to take a taxi and instead we got down at Kottayam railway station and got an auto to Kumarakom. The person charged about 250 if I remember correctly. The road was a little bumpy and narrow. On the way we could see an array of similar resorts and homestays. As we reached the place we were welcomed with a drink and our luggage was shifted to the small cottage room overlooking the canal.
Although , not that well known a name as some of the other beaces, Mararikulam is one of the up and coming beaches in Kerala. Situated at a distance of 40km from Kochi, the mararikulam Beach has a lot to offer to tourists. Water sports such as parasailing, surfing etc. are just some of the reasons you should go there. If adventure sports is not your things, you can always laze on the beach and enjoy the tropical sun.
