If you are looking to be away from the crowded beaches and yet have people around, then this is the right place to be in. You can reach this destination steering through the narrow roads of serene backwaters, coconut trees, and fishing nets. Kuzhupilly Beach is a long stretch beach with pine trees dancing to the breeze flowing from the beautiful and pristine Arabian Sea.
Though there is no marked parking lot you can park your vehicle to the corners of roads. Make sure you are not disrupting the flow of vehicles as the road is too narrow for two vehicles to pass at the same time. As you walk to the beach a long stretch of pine trees welcome you. Once you feel sand all you want is to take a dip into the bubbly turquoise water of Arabian Sea. The entire beach stretch is covered with pine trees which add to the beauty of this beach. Apart from playing with the waves, you can watch the sunset, simply sit and relax, watch the local fishermen fish and row by, collect tiny shells, play with your child, or just a casual outing. There are some local snack shops around so you can binge on some refreshments too. However, there are no water sports or partying activities at this beach. In short, this is an ideal beach to relax.
What to Carry
There are very few shops around this beach and those there offer just the basic snacks and beverages. So, if you are going to spend a long time there make sure to carry your own food and water. If you are planning to take a dip then carry extra clothes and towel as there are changing rooms available. For those who love to click and make memories, don’t forget that camera of yours.
