Discover some of Kerala's stunning beach hideaways

The beautiful beaches of Kerala are blessed with tranquil estuaries and waterways as well as the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. Kovalam is set almost at India’s most southern tip and this former fishing village is now one of Kerala’s most popular beach resorts; while Marari is a sleepy fishing village near Alleppey and it is the perfect peaceful place to relax following a tour of Southern India.

  • Lighthouse Beach – the most popular of Kovalam's three main beaches – is lined with hotels and restaurants offering the catch-of-the-day
  • Escape to a hillside retreat and relax on the picture-perfect bays, which are backed by laid-back hotels and Ayurvedic resorts
  • The pace of life in Marari is slow so take the time to realign body and soul, indulging in rejuvenating Ayurvedic massages and the ancient practices of yoga and meditation
  • Between Goa and the more famous beach resorts of Kerala lies Bekal where you will find luxury beach resorts and a wide expanse of white sand. Post-sunset swims are a favourite pastime heres
  • Each of Kerala's beach resorts make a great post-tour break
