From Cochin Airport, you will be picked up by our executive and driven to Alleppey. As you land in the town that’s a conglomeration of canals, lagoons, backwaters and beaches, you cannot help but relax to the tunes of nature. Take a boat ride through the backwaters of Kuttanad and through Vembanad Lake, to witness and experience the true charm of Alleppey. Taste the incredibly tasty Kerala cuisine while you are enjoying the boat ride. You can head to the beach next and have a fun time. If you are keen on exploring the spiritual side of Alleppey, you have churches and temples that also have interesting architecture and a serene ambience.
After a three and a half hours drive, you will reach Kovalam, the cute little coastal town in the capital city of Trivandrum. After checking in the hotel and freshening up, get into your beach look and head out for the crescent shaped beaches, coconut grooves that run along them and the mossy rocks that make their way into the waves. You can beach-hop from the Main Beach to Hawa Beach and to the other many beaches all day. Kovalam also offers a variety of water sports like snorkeling, surfing, etc. Visit the light house to catch the spectacular view of the sea and the city. Watch the sunset before you call it a day and head back to the hotel..
After breakfast, you can set out to get a sneak peek into Kerala’s heritage. Drop by at the Halcyon Castle. It was constructed in the early 1930s for the royal family to have a retreat by the beach. Now it has been converted into a museum. You can spend the rest of the day pampering yourself by indulging in something Kerala is famous for – the Ayurvedic massages and spas. There are few things better than this to embrace your physical as well as emotional well-being. You can also avail treatments for specific ailments here. If you want to shop for some souvenirs, there are shops that sell handicraft and antique items.
Our executive will drop you back at the airport. While you take off from the land of beaches you will realize how positive and lively you feel and that is probably reason enough for you to make this trip once again.
