The scenic backwater near the Bekal Fort transports us to a serene environment away from the hustle and bustle. The mesmerizing view from a kettuvallam (houseboat) is probably the one thing that you need to just lay back and relax. Valiyaparamba is the third-largest backwaters in Kerala which provides a picturesque view of the local flora and fauna.
The boat ride through the backwaters takes you to Valiyaparamba island, the largest island in Kavvayi backwaters. One can relax in the houseboat and enjoy the rustic charm of the unspoiled backwaters, catch fish or enjoy a nice meal in the houseboat. The calm and secluded Valiyaparamba Island is a perfect getaway from the city.
The Valiyaparamba beach is not very far away and remains untouched by tourists. Although Valiyaparamba backwaters is a favourable spot all throughout the year, November to May is the best time and it will help you escape the summer.
