Mararikulam has a really beautiful, clean beach which is frequented by foreigners who stay in few of the best beach resorts in Kerala. This may be the only beach in Kerala with coconut trees lining the seashores. One of those kind of beaches you find in the ads is magazine covers with Coconut trees swaying over fine, white sand, lapped by clear, clear water and a fishermans canoe somewhere in the sea. The beach is virtually deserted at most time of the day and there are private beaches of resorts as well in Marari which makes it one of the most sought after Kerala honeymoon destinations .Distance from Mararikulam Beach to Kochi is 46 Kilometers. The general atmosphere is laid back and Marari has slightly expensive tourist facilities than Cherai.
