About Alleppey Beach

voted as clean

Alleppey Beach, also known as Alappuzha Beach is one of the most visited beaches of Kerala. To the west of the beach lies the Arabian Sea and along with it a large network of lakes, lagoons and several freshwater rivers located nearby. In addition, this beach is also known to be the busiest coast of entire Kerala. Moreover, the canals and the backwaters of this beach make possible the business of tea and rubber throughout.

This beach also houses a lighthouse which is 1,000 ft in height. Built by Captain Hugh Crawford in 1862, this lighthouse was to assist and help boats arriving on this beach for trade purpose. At present, tourists visiting this beach can witness the reminiscence of the lighthouse.

Due to the dilapidated structure of the lighthouse, the government has prohibited entry inside the lighthouse. Much of the portions of the lighthouse have been washed by the waves and bricks that have been carried away by the sea water.

"A local beach"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Alappuzha beach is in Alleppey district. We there by 10:30 am and it was super hot. There was no crowd, but only some local people was there. Beach was just OK, the best part is there is no food stalls in the beach, so a little clean. A toilet was there near to the beach. There is nothing that you will miss if you don't go there. So if you got time and it fits in your itinerary just make a quick stop and go.

"Nice beach to visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Because we were there during the day time, the beach was super hot. I feel during sunrise or sunset it would be really different. Though it was very clean but I couldn't find any essential facilities for tourist but yes there are so many hotels and restaurants near it which I could use.

"Very Clean beach - perfect for spending an evening"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Aleppy beach is about 30mins from the backwaters. It's a beautiful clean beach, with ample parking. Great for the evening. There is a old marina ruin with wooden and metal beams and the remains of it gives a unique rustic identity to the beach.

People come here at all times of the day, as one crosses this while going from Kochi to Kollam. While coming the other way though, this can be a perfect sunset spot before entering Kochi at night.

"Beautiful Beach with not so beautiful surroundings"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Today around 11 am, I went to the Alappuzha beach, also known as the Alleppey Beach which is known as the Venice of East. It was really hot at that time. I would advise you to go there in evening so that you can avoid harsh sun rays. Beach is beautiful but the surrounding area is not clean. Few small eatable joints are there. Also paid toilet facility is there but they are really dirty and not maintained properly.

"An Average Beach at Alleppey"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The main Alappuzha Beach is just about an average sightseeing place. The beach is clean to an extent due to non availability of stalls. But not pristine clean.

We were here in the morning but evenings will be good for a sunset view.

But nothing to write about much. Can be given a miss if schedule doesn't allow. You wont be missing anything.

"Alleppey Beach Kerala"

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Alleppey Beach Kerala is nothing to write home about. It is easily accessible by road but has new overbridge road construction going on so be careful while visiting. Wear Good shoes and Sun hats to avoid getting burnt. Although there are Lifeguards and few Seaside umbrellas on the beach please carry your own umbrellas. The entrance to the beach is filled with bottles and Glass as well as garbage. After dodging them you do come to a fairly clean Beach Good enough for a swim and a game of catch or throw ball on the beach. I wouldn't revisit.

"Nice Beach to Visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Beautiful blue beach. As far as your eyes can go you will see blue water. With a white sand beach, the best time to visit Alleppey Beach would be the sunset or the sunrise. There are not many shops around at the place and it doesn’t have any eatery to offer at the beach. Atleast not during the day time when we visited it. But as soon as you cross the road there are small shops selling nice food. There is a huge parking also available right across the road so going in your own car shouldn’t be a problem or even getting a taxi or an auto. One should definitely go to unwind your thoughts and like it’s said Smell the sea and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly.

"One of India's Best Beach"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 1, 2017
I have visited Alleppey Beach today and it is a great experience for me. Clean and not so crowdy. Best time to visit is early in the morning from 9AM to 11am and 4-6 in the evening. At beach side you can eat chatpata kaccha am and pineapple. It is only 6km away from Bus Stand

"Worst beach and much hyped"

  • 1.0/7
  • Posted Jul 19, 2017
This is the worst beach I have ever seen. No facilities at all. Not much scenic beauty apart from natural. Not maintained. There is a 150 years old Pier, which is completely broken. Not a good place to be.
