Kappil Beach And Lake, Varkala Reviews

  • What a lovely place! Wish to visit again and again. We noticed this place on the way to Varkala. Very soon we got down here. Such an awesome place to hang out with your loved ones. A river and sea meets here and converges. Water is shallow and very very clean so that you can sense the depth of the river. What a lovely place!

  • Luxury is anything that feels special. I mean, it can be a moment, it can be a walk on the beach, it could be a kiss from your child, or it could be a beautiful picture frame, a special fragrance. I think luxury doesn't necessarily have to mean expensive. Positive vibes here.... enjoyed a lot.... loved this 😘😘😘😘

  • Beautiful place. Enjoyed completely. The view of the beach and the lake is mesmerising. An out of the world experience. You can see the beach on one side and the lake on the other side. A very good option for a family picnic. Children will really enjoy the place. Cant be missed if you are in Trivandrum.

  • The Kappil Beach is situated 7 km away from Varkala. Located close to the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram, people come here to enjoy the scenic backwaters and the various water sports options. One gets to view both the backwaters and a beach at the same exact location. It is a peaceful area with ample chances to simply relax or take a comforting boat ride. A drive along the coastal road is also a tranquil way to experience the view. PLEASE NOTE: Yet, not much attention has been paid to creating infrastructure and recreational facilities for those who throng the beaches.

  • One of the best places on earth. Loved walking in there in the morning. Local authorities should put an extra in the general up keeping of the place...
