Places of interest
1. Beaches :– Kerala has a 600 km long shoreline and is known to have some of the best beaches in the world. The beaches of Kerala are beautiful, clean and dotted by the palms and coconut trees.
a) Kovalam Beach
Kovalam, the beachfront that has made into the international tourism map, is 16 km off the state capital, Thiruvananthapuram. The Arabian Sea that lines Kerala along its west all along turns into a meek and placid waterscape at Kovalam.
Its major attraction is the sandy seaside naturally divided by rocky mounds into three separate curved beaches. Clear water with shallow bottom up to a hundred meters has made Kovalam a swimmers’ haven. However, the 1970’s saw foreign tourists arriving and hotels being set up for them. In the early years of discovery of its potential a large part of the tourists were followers of the counterculture, like the Hippie m ovement, who wanted to enjoy an idyll on this lonely beach. Kovalam was the harbinger of the now thriving tourism industry in Kerala.
b) Cherai beach
Twenty-six km by road from Ernakulam, Cherai Beach is an excellent place that has plenty of sun, sand and water. It has only recently come into the limelight.
Cherai is a village on Vypeen Island which is part of Ernakulam district. A narrow island strip stretching some 40 km, Vypeen has backwaters to the east and the Arabian Sea to the west. Cherai is accessible both by road and waterway. With the construction of three bridges the distance by road to Vypeen is considerably reduced.
c) Calicut/ Kozhikode Beach
The beach at Kozhikode is the popular hangout of the people in and around the
ancient port town and is just one km from the city centre. The beach road runs about 10km along the coast. A part of th e road immediately behind the city is a commercial hub.The area close to the piers is a favourite of the visitors. This spot has a prominent place in the history of Calicut as the a key port where traders from Arabia and China weighed anchor and had been trading for centuries The emergence of Beypore as the main port eclipsed its commercial importance. The beach still has two piers built in the 19th century though it is in ruins now. Fallen into disuse for long they have withstood the merciless beatings of waves for more than a century and have finally begun to collapse.
Here the water is muddy and sea is not shallow enough for swimming. However, the slightly slanting sandy shore is relatively wide and an ideal place for spending an evening chatting or gazing at the setting sun. The beach has a lighthouse as also a children’s park, though the latter is in a state of disrepair. A few kilometres north from the light house is a marine aquarium that too is a big draw for the visitors. The beach has an old lighthouse and two crumbling piers running into the sea, each more than a hundred years old. Children can be entertained at the Lions Park and the Marine Water Aquarium.
e) Bekal-Fort Beach
