In South India, Kerala, for its uncontaminated tropical beauty, is often called the “God’s Own Country” This coastal state has a spot for everyone, whether you’re interested in the beach, the mountains, adventure, nature, history, or culture. Lifestyle is slow, which makes it an ideal place for a relaxing holiday. Do not forget to visit the top spots in Kerala.
1. Kochi Fort
Known as Kerala Gateway, Kochi is an eclectically inspired, enchanting city. There have all been the Arabs, British, Dutch, Chinese, and Portuguese. Most tourists are drawn by the architecture and historic places in Fort Kochi. When you have children, think about taking them to Kochi’s Wonderla Fun Park, too. For every budget, there are also several hotels and residences.
2. Muziris Museums
If you’re searching for history, extend your time to Muziris, about an hour north of the capital, in Kochi. The multicultural district once became Kerala’s largest trading port and industry flourished for over a thousand years until a flood destroyed it. It is established as a heritage project by the Kerala administration.
The region of Muziris is Kodungallur and Paravoor (where every year in late March or early April, a surprising and very Gorian Kodungallur Bhagavathy temple festival is held). There are many ancient churches, synagogues, mezzanines, and temples. The first mosque of India was built in 629 AD in Cheraman Juma Masjid. The Muziris Heritage Tour is a full-day private tour of Cochin Magic.
3. Backwater of Kerala
Travel by houseboat along the Kerala canals, which are known as the backwater canal, is one of the peaceful and relaxing places in Kerala. Freshly cooked Indian food and chilled beer (buy your own and bring it to your boat) make it a much more interesting experience. In the middle of a lake, you can spend the night.
Stay in a home or resort along the water for a couple of nights. Happy! Do not miss a sunset on Vembanad Lake from Kakkathuruthu Island for the ultimate experience. Most of the trips from Backwaters begin in Alleppey.
4. Beach Marari
If in Kerala you’re only 30 minutes to the North of the picturesque Marari after a quiet and readily accessible beach break. This village has a long, unbuilt beach area and a variety of accommodations, from plaster resorts to basic homestays. The beach is often facing.
5. National Park Periyar
Kerala Park is one of the most popular national parks in south India and is located in the district of Thekkady.

Safaris are done by ship and the lake at sunset is particularly exciting. There are also a number of ecotourism events open to tourists.

Adventure enthusiasts will be invited to walk to Anamudi, South India’s highest peak, or go rock and paragliding to explore Eravikulam National Park. Munnar is surrounded by nature and provides a wide variety of accommodation.
Amazing is the scenery of Varkala Beach, with a long and winding cliff stretch and views over the Arab Sea. There is a paved path along the cliff, which runs along with cocoon palm trees, picturesque stores, beach shacks, hotels, and inns. The long stretch of sparkling beach is set at the base of the cliff and reached by steps down from the top of the cliff. No wonder Varkala is one of the best beaches in India.
Wayanad is a luminous green mountain ranging along the Western Ghats. It has a lot of picturesque attractions. The landscape consists of abundant cocoa palms, dense forests, paddy fields, and lofty peaks. The area also has many adventure enthusiasts because of its natural scenery. Trips to Chembra Hill, Meenmutty Falls, and the old Jain temples and climbs to Edakkal Caves are also popular.
Muthanga and Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuaries are also located here. Wildlife sites are popular with tourists. Wayanad’s many fun homestays are another highlight. One of them is Glenora.
The Kannur district in northern Kerala offers a great blend of secluded beaches and culture with mysterious masqueraded rites (October through May and handloom weaving, which make the Kannur district one of the best spots to get off the busiest track in India.
In the city of Kannur is also Muzhappilangad Drive-In Beach. The big stretch of sand you can drive all the way! Relax and enjoy the calmness in one of the affordable lodging choices at the beach.
The most famous beach in Kerala, Kovalam, is conveniently located approximately 40minutes southeast of Trivandrum, the capital of Trivandrum. In early 1970, as millions of hippies converged on it it was catapulted onto the tourist map as it followed the Hippie Trail to Ceylon (now called Sri Lanka).
Kovalam would certainly not appeal to everyone because its main beach is bordered by a dense range of hotels and dominates itself, though the pockets are quieter in places.
