About Alleppey Beach Kerala

Alappuzha or Alleppey is a tiny place located on a thin strip of land between the Arabian Sea and the Punnamada Backwaters. The place is fondly referred to as the Venice of East because of its striking similarity between the two (Alappuzha and Venice) with regards to intricate maze of backwaters, canals and bridges. In the east the canals open to the Punnamada Backwaters while on the west they end close to the pier of Alappuzha beach. Alappuzha was once a thriving port and also a gateway to enter Kerala. The port was built by Raja Kesava Das, the Deewan of Travancore in the 18th century and facilitated the passage of goods to and from the region.

Today, Alleppey beach and the town in itself are a huge attraction for tourists who are in search of some different experience. The waters of the sea rush towards you as you approach it and seems more than willing to reveal the earthly story of this quaint little town.

Unravel The History At Alappuzha Beach

The 1000 feet pier at the Alappuzha beach that extends into the sea dates back to 1862. It was constructed by Captain Huge Crawford and served as a platform that provided access and protection to ships and boats. Today, though very little of the pier is left, yet it has an undeniable charm that will definitely attract you. The lighthouse, that once showed way to boats and ferries in the midst of pervading darkness of night, today allows very restricted entry. Together, the pier and the lighthouse recreate the era when boats sailed in large number to the ports of Alappuzha. They actually lead you back into time.
