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 exotic Kerala beaches on the crystal waters of the Arabian Sea are little pieces of heaven on earth. The Beypore beach is particularly popular.
An important name in the trade and maritime map of ancient Kerala, Beypore is particularly famous for its age old boat building industry. Dotted with silhouettes of fishing boats and a stone pathway jutting 2 km into the sea, Beypore gives a marine experience with a difference.
