Kerala is blessed with a large number of water bodies, including lakes, rivers and back waters. Sandy beaches, lush green forests and verdant hills add to the luster of this land.

Have you ever thought of having a lake-front get-away, that too in full view of the Arabian Sea? Would you like to swim a couple of lengths in the lake under a bright tropical sun and also savor a tall cool glass of your favorite drink on the shore? Are you interested in using a rod to fish in the lake, or would you rather accompany the local fishermen during their daily activity of fishing?
A drive of 40 Km from Trivandrum along the NH 47 will take you to Kallabalam. Turn to the left and proceed another 13 Km, you will see the breath taking beauty of Mother Nature in all her splendor. On one side of the road, you see the waves of Arabian sea. On the other side, you will meet the placid waters of Paravoor lake. You could stroll on the beach and see the 'pozhi', where the lake nudges the sea. The breeze will make you forget all tribulations of the city

The arabian sea separated from the 'Paravoor kayal '(paravoor back water) by a long strip of land studded with the swaying coconut trees. In monsoon excess water flows from the kayal in to the sea via the 'POZHI' ? a sandy beach.
There is a boat club to take you on speed boat ride or on a safari cruise. For a more adventure person, paddle boating, row boating and para-sailing also available.
There are comfortable resorts around for those who like to stay put- you don?t need to burn a hole in your purse as there are non a/c rooms available from Rs 1000-1500 per night.

Address: 50 KM from Trivandrum. On Varkala paravoor road
Directions: Kappil, Varkala Paravoor Road. Trivandrum Dist. Kerala
