Kappil Beach

Kappil Beach lies on India’s Arabian Sea coast in the south of Kerala, close enough to the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram to make a detour a real possibility. What’s more, Kappil Beach is only seven kilometres north of Varkala and its railway station.

The beach consists of at least one kilometre of sand that forms a spit between the sea and the waters of Edava Narayana lake. Surrounded by coconut palms, a narrow rocky stretch soon gives way to golden sands.

The length of Kappil Beach means it is rarely crowded, while the combination of sea and lake shores gives visitors a range of options when it comes to places to hang out. It also makes the birding on this part of the Kerala coast particularly good.
