An oasis of fun and frolic right by the side of a vast green-blue expanse, that is how the famed Alappuzha beach welcomes you. The palm-fringed beach, surrounded by lush greenery and historic structures, is a magical combination that serenades you into a land of wonders.
As the swells of the ocean crash onto the shores and you listen to the gentle whispers of the cool breeze and the rhythmic song of the ocean, get ready to be transported to a tranquil space.
One of the most popular picnic spots in Alappuzha, this beach is famous for an ancient pier and a lighthouse. The pier is over 140 years old and breathes history. Built by Captain Crawford, this structure gives you a rare experience of walking right into the sea! The old lighthouse here is another fascinating feature that draws people to the beach.
Be it lazing away on the golden sands and finding your moment of quietude, enjoying a sunbath or indulging in countless entertainment activities, Alappuzha Beach has all this and more to satiate the lotus-eater in you.
The Vijaya Beach Park on the beach is a picnic spot that is tailor-made for children. Facilities for boating, riding on a toy train and bicycles are also available here.
The most interesting time to be here is during the New Year bash when the beach bursts with festive fervour. The Sand Art Fest and the Beach fest are events to watch out for. Once here, also keep your ears cocked for sagas and songs that recount the glorious role the district played in the maritime history of Kerala.
