Alappuzha Beach
Known as the 'Venice of East', with the Arabian Sea in the West and a large number of lakes and lagoons crisscrossing it, Alappuzha is one of the most beautiful districts in Kerala. Famous for a horde of things, Alappuzha stands out for its breathtakingly amazing beach. This beach along with its famous backwater Houseboats and Boat races attracts thousands of tourists every year.

This is one of the most popular picnic spots in Alappuzha. The pier, which extends into the sea here, is about 140 years old. Entertainment facilities at the Vijaya Beach Park, near the Beach, add to the attraction of the Beach. Blessed with nature's green beauties such as lagoons, vast lakes and numerous fresh water rivers, Alappuzha is a natural wonderland of Kerala state.

Earlier known an Alleppey, the place is now famous for the Snake Boat Races held here every year around the time of the Onam festival. The giant snake boats called Chundanvalloms, race against each other for the prestigious Nehru Trophy. Crowds gather in huge numbers to witness this race, which is also a famous event amongst the tourists' population visiting Fascinating Kerala, South India. Today, Alappuzha has grown into an important Backwater Tourist Centre, attracting several thousands of foreign tourists each year. Alappuzha is also famous for its Boat races, Houseboat Holidays, Beaches, Marine Products and Coir Industry.
