Marari Beach, Alappuzha

Marari Beach in the Alappuzha district is a go-to destination for beach bums who want to laze around in a peaceful, serene and pristine environment. The name ‘Marari’ is short for Mararikulam, which is a beautiful fishing village lying along this coast. 

The swaying coconut palms and golden sands of the beach are perfect companions for those who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Take a long beach walk and, if you so desire, pamper yourself with a bout of traditional Ayurvedic wellness treatment. Tourists have the option to rent beach chairs and umbrellas but don’t expect any water sports or beach shacks. You can also go on a tour through the neighbouring villages. Stroll around or cycle and observe the slow pace of life in the village. Watching the fisherfolk engaged in their daily chores is an interesting sight. Talk to local fishermen, and they may well give you a ride on their boats if they find it safe. 

The weather at the Marari Beach remains warm and humid throughout the year. The best time to visit the beach is between the months of December and March. During this time the beach and its surroundings remain mostly dry.  

Visitors can go for a backwater cruise in Alappuzha and witness the sights that make up country life. Alappuzha beach, Lighthouse, Kumarakom bird sanctuary and International Coir Museum are some of the tourist attractions nearby.
