ALLEPEY BACKWATERS AND BEACHES


Allepey beach was certainly a peasant surprise.beautiful pristine beach,huge parking lot,camel rides and also an old 137 year old pier boasting of the spice trade route many years back which gave allepey/alappuzha the name of  “venice of the east”

Allepey is a place worth exploring so personal tip will be to stay put at a good hotel/resort and take a day trip on the backwaters. any night stay on a decent houseboat will range from rs8000-13000 and above and the actual time you sail is just 3-4 hrs. rest of the time between 12 noon till next morning 9 am you are anchored,and being anchored on a houseboat is not much fun.

The area is probably the only place in the continent where farming is done below sea level, using a system of dykes and bunds.


Allappuzha (Known as Alleppey). It’s a town with picturesque canals, backwater, beaches and lagoons. It’s  also described as the one of the places known as “Venice of the east” by lord Curzon.

    • i agree with you Andrew. i personally feel that the deserted look to the beach is basically because most of the tourists are not even aware of the existance of this beach. for most tourists who are not explorers —allepey means backwater boat ride.through this blog i hope some travellers benefit and see the other side too. thankyou for visiting my blog.
