Friendly people

Most tourists do the southern part of Kerala, from Kochi and down to Kovalam (I did too the first time I went). But going north is worth a try.
The Kannur area has less people, few tourists, beautiful beaches and it is the place to go for theyyam.

A beach completely to ourselves

The population in northern Kerala is mainly muslim and they can be offended by the typical european almost-no-clothes-on-the-beach thing, but as far as we were concerned we didn't see anybody else on the beach at all so it wasn't really a problem :-)

Travelling with kids

Indian people are in general very helpful and interested. However, travelling with a little kid took this to a whole new dimension. If you take your precautions regarding food, water, sun etc. they can have a great time too!
At Costa Malabari the waiter and the cook volunteered in taking turns entertaining Mikkel while we were eating :-)
