Marari beach

Hi,

We are considering going to Marari beach the coming winter. I have read some injo about that it is not very clean due to the fact that the locals use it as toilet. Is this still the case? Are there parts of the beach, away from the village, that are cleaner. How are the reorts located, are some located on a "cleaner" part? Any recommendations are highly appreciated.

/Mike

The beaches infront of the resorts are not used by locals

so you wont have any issues with them being used as toilets

Marari is still a fishing village with densely populated traditional fishing community , unlike the most touristy beaches here in Kerala.

walking further away from the beach front resorts you will see them being used as toilets

We visited here about 4 years ago and it was not so much the locals using the beach as a toilet, but the dogs! We found it a problem at other places in Kerala also, not just at Marari.

Hi, thanks for the information. Are there any other nice beaches in that area, more secluded, but with the same beauty as Marari.

Marari is a long stretch of beach ( sayapprox 3-4 kms ) with no rocky seperation like in Kovalam or say varkala

Marari beach is not crowded like the beaches like Kovalam or Varkala , as there are very few accommodations available ,as of now

Check out the Marari beach resort , of CGH or carnoustie resorts. they have a long stretch of beach in front and kept clean by them

only during weekends and local holidays you will find domestic crowd

but even then that is very less comapred to the crowd at Alleppey beach
