The ancient land founded by the legendary mythological figure Rishi Parashuram, blessed with emerald backwaters and gold and silver beaches is Kerala- God's own country. With the Arabian Sea on the west and the Western Ghats on its east, Kerala is a treasure trove of indigenous cultural practices and art forms that have mesmerized people all over the world. Be it the age old Kathakali or the newly rediscovered Mohiniattyam or the knowledge of Ayurveda. Basking in the generosity of the sun and rain the climate of Kerala supports a lush vegetation and a wide array of wildlife unlike anywhere else in the country. This miraculously unspoiled serene wilderness is all nature lovers' paradise and rapidly gaining momentum as a popular tourist hub in and around the country. The Kerala beaches on the crystal waters of the Arabian Sea are little pieces of heaven on earth. The Alappuzha beach is particularly popular.
Alappuzha district, formerly known as Alleppy, has always been and important maritime destination in Kerala. Now popular for its backwaters and beaches, Alappuzha beach is conveniently positioned at distance of 85 km from the Kochi Airport and 5 km from the Alappuzha station. The pier at the beach that juts out into the sea is about 140 years old. The Vijaya Beach Park with water sports facilities for adults and children is a recent addition to the already popular beach. Basking under the Keralian sun on the golden sand of the beach will catapult you far away from stress and strain. The boat races and the rice cultivation at Kuttanad below sea level is a must-see.
