Alleppey BeachLocated in the district of Alappuzha, this beach is one of the finest of Kerala. The beach allows tourists to indulge in diverse activities. While some tourists love to have a glance of the early morning and late evening sun, some others take leisurely strolls on the beach with a cold breeze blowing continuously.
