  • A Serene Get-Away Nearby Alleppey Blessed With Beach, Backwater & Bird Sanctuary

  • Mararikulam is a small beach-village in Alappuzha district of Kerala. This place was named after Marari (Lord Siva), the residing deity of the place. The popularity of this small town was attached with the famous Mararikulam Mahadeva temple until tourism here boomed owing to the nature’s bounty. Shimmering beaches, spellbinding backwaters, lush green fields & vegetation, and the beauty of this place allured the globetrotters and thus started the inflow of tourists to this place. Mararikulam is located nearby Alleppey and its geographical juxtaposition paves path for the amazing backwaters of Kerala, which are surrounded by green palms and serene villages here. All these together count up to make Mararikulam a peaceful place to get soaked in the serene atmosphere, relax and unwind.

  • The town’s prime attraction is its beach known as Marari Beach or Mararikulam beach. Fringed with tall, inclining coconut palms, Marari Beach is a perfect relaxing retreat. The beach is secluded, much unlike any touristy beach, and offers a variety of watersports such as surfing, jet-skiing, parasailing and more. Tourists not only enjoy the environment and the watersport activities but also the mouth-watering seafood that are freshly made & served by the beachside shacks. Sightseeing here might not have much variants but Marari Beach, International Coir Museum, the coir industry, Kanichukulangara Devi temple, and Comrade K.V. Vaidyar Smarakam are some places to satiate the sightseeing bug within. Some interesting day trip to Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, traditional coir-making units, and the Kerala Backwater canals will surely enhance the happiness quotient in your beach-holiday at Mararikulam.
