We went to Kotty jetty to catch the lone ferry that makes the round trip in approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes. Valiyaparamba lies about 1 hour 40 minutes from Kotty and they charge you a sum of INR 12/head. The ferry is really rusty and might not have much left in it but the route is one of the best that one can experience in Kerala. Most of the people were curious to see us; first because they didn't have much tourists and second, it was the off-season.Valiyaparamba is a thin stretch of land that divides the backwaters and the sea. The entire stretch has just one non-functional streetlight. We reached the beach, but the sea was furious and muddy. The shifting sandbars did not even offer us a chance to sit for sometime. This was the first time I had seen a monsoon induced roaring sea. We walked through the village and took an auto back over the bridge and then a bus from there onwards.
