Rajendra, Kerala Travel Expert

Kerala carries the sobriquet ‘God’s Own Country’. Lush tea gardens, intoxicating spice plantations, languid backwaters reflecting the marshy grasslands, rejuvenating Ayurveda, paradisiacal beaches, wildlife parks and swaying coconut palms… Kerala is unlike any other destination.

Kerala truly is heaven on earth and unarguably one of the best holiday destinations in this country. The drive from Kochi to the hill station of Munnar is one of pure beauty. The snaking road takes you to cool mountain air and the waft of freshly plucked tea leaves. The undulating and lush tea gardens of Munnar are a treat to the senses. Sun kissed white sands and turquoise salty waters of the ocean… if sun and surf are what you need, then head to the beautiful beaches of Kerala. In southern Kerala, cliffs run adjacent to the sea on Varkala beach. Less crowded than other beaches, it may just have the most breathtaking sunsets in Kerala. To witness typical Keralan fishing village life, head to Marari.

Travel to Kerala with a specialized travel agency

Kerala is known for its palm-lined beaches, backwaters, mountains dotted with tea plantations, as well as wildlife. A holiday to Kerala introduces you to a quieter and calmer India which is bordered by nearly 600km of Arabian Sea shoreline.

What do in Kerala

Miles of the Malabar Coast beckon beach relaxers and adventurers alike. From Kochi to the Kovalam beach, Kerala offers some of the most pristine and breathtaking shores in southern India. A holiday to Kerala will take you from the rolling tea plantations of Munnar, to the bountiful Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, and the many Kochi attractions. An adventurous day can be culminated with a traditional Ayurvedic massage and the lip smacking cuisine of Kerala. It goes without saying that a southern sojourn is incomplete without discovering and experiencing the legendary Kerala backwater tours.

The backwaters of Kerala

A chain of brackish lagoons and lakes lying parallel to the Arabian Sea, this network is made up of five large lakes linked by both manmade and natural canals and fed by 38 rivers. Cruise round this maze of canals, rivers, lakes and lagoons and experience first-hand the purpose of these beautiful waters: transport, fishing and agriculture. You’ll pass through lush green landscapes, spot lots of wildlife and even visit some of the water villages as you cruise round one of the most visited parts of Kerala. You’ll be overwhelmed by the green beauty as you absorb the Kerala backwaters sites and tranquillity.

Kerala beaches

Known for its white sand beaches lined with palm trees, Kerala is the Indian destination for a seaside holiday. The area of Kovalam in Kerala is probably the most popular beach destination: it began as a fishing village and now paths cut through palm-tree groves to beachside restaurants and hotels. If you’re looking for a lively beach then head to Hawa Beach which is beaming with locals enjoying the seas of this area, each full of joy and happiness.
