Marari Beach, Mararikulam

Head down to Marari Beach, where a thick stripe of palm trees frames the golden sand. A blue rolling sea laps the long sandy beach, and while the roughness of the water makes it far from ideal for swimming, a few tourists and locals do brave a quick splash around. The beach maintains a quieter and more local vibe than many others in the area; you won't find the usual eateries or resorts here, although the nearby village has a couple of refreshment shacks.

  • I rely on the TripAdvisor reviews on this beach... big mistake. Either those who leave have no QCB trip (are so many beautiful beaches in the world, in Corsica, in Thailand, Maurice or elsewhere, that are light-years away from ca), I don't understand them either I fell at the wrong time (there had been a storm one little further the area of qqs days before). In any case, the sand was not white, the beach was dirty and full of trash, as often in India... and nobody in the water, necessarily: big rollers and... gray water! I had never seen anything like it, grey particles in the water and which is deversaient on the sand. On top of that, the sea picked on foam, like that of rivers polluted from Bangalore. In most it was completely dead, not big world and not much to do or see. I'm still only one night in the corner, and it was already too.

  • Marari Beach is a pleasant, clean beach with a scattering of small cafes and beach side restaurants. Fisherman occupy some parts of the beach but the majority of it is well set up for tourists and you...  more »

  • One of the best beaches in Kerala. Unlike other places, the beach is clean and neat. It has white sand which makes the place very nice. If you like a beach which is not crowded (rare in India) and calm, this is the right one for you. Since the beach is long compared to other Kerala beaches, you will definitely find a place to sit, play and relax. There are a couple of resorts nearby. If you are in need of a rest room, you need rely on neighborhood houses. The local people are very friendly. So you don't feel any difficulty.
  • Very scenic place. Calm and cool. Enjoyed the tides. Restaurants are available inside. I enjoyed the place. It is not so much crowded.
  • Water is too calm and clean. Have been with friends and one of the cute beach's I have visited ☺
  • Far from the maddening crowd of alappuzha beach, here lies a calm and serene beach. Around 14 KM's from Alappuzha, this is a traveller's paradise. Weekends can be crowded as the place is gaining popularity among tourists. There are small shacks where you get tea and snacks, but you can't find hotels nearby, execpt for some upscale resorts. Carry an additional pair of clothes. Reach here early in the morning and you can see fishing activities, chat with the local fishermen and gain an insight into fishing. Overall, good experience.
  • We found our own space on the beach which may be atypical of Kerala beaches. The only issue is one that Marari beach has in common with the rest of country. Intrusive, sometimes drunk, always misbehaving groups of men who have nothing better in life to do than prey on women. Options for food are limited but again, beach itself is quite a good place, until the crowds find it!
