The beautiful state of Kerala is all about beaches filled with tourists but 
Marari beach helps you go easy as against the fast-paced popular beaches in the state. We all love beaches but popular beaches get pretty crowded and don’t give you the deserved time-off at a relaxing pace. This beach is a peaceful one which will help you unwind your senses and transfer your world. The good old fishing village has simplistic outing arenas for the tourists and the beach is sure to blow your mind away solely for the peace you will experience on your journey.

The beach ambience leads you to follow your own relaxation therapies like yoga and meditation or indulges in the pampering sessions of Ayurveda spa and massage.

The beach also provides a safe spot for swimming and is considered a retreat for many water sports activities that are made available.

Every year a good number of overseas tourists come here to relax and experience the rustic nature of the surroundings. If you have planned a Kerala tour then visiting here has to be included. It is a complete change within Kerala. On one hand, you might be enjoying the vibrant beaches in Kovalam and on the other rejoicing in tranquillity and being a witness to some great sights, village dreams and fishing is what will enchant you. Kerala offers both the experiences and what’s better than to sit on the blonde carpet of sand and forget about your busy and hectic life back home.
