Have you ever stood in between lake and sea? If not please visit here. Awesome scenery. Beach is clean and attracts crowd in the evenings. Please visit once. Best place to be with friends.

I will suggest you to take 1 hour course of boating. You can see wonderful Kerala view. Also, Kappil beach is too beautiful.

I commented in another review. This beach is my favorite for its tranquility, natural beauty, the lake walking parallel to it and its length. Perfect to get lost in it and enjoy it for several hours

Nice: not much tourists. But no "life" there. I was as a woman alone and I felt bad, because just some indian fishermen were there.

This is The place where BackWaters & Beach can be seen together. We go to Kappil Beach via a bridge. The view is spectacular, on one side we have waves roaring on the beach and other side we see calm fresh water lake. A location not to be missed...

We had a ride in the lake as a part of package with Gateway Hotel, Varkala. The lake is quite big and serene. It is a must watch in Varkala.

This is something we get to see not very often.. Back water on one side and sea on other side with a very good view.. Ideally for a day long picnic to sit and relax in the trees near the back water. No other amenities around. Even in the beach.. there is absolutely no amenities.
