A short distance drive from silent backwaters to palm fringed beach on the Arabian Sea.
From Kumarakom, whether it be a resort or houseboat, it is just a short drive to Marari Beach. Driving through village roads, crossing the rivers, you can see fishermen selling fishes by cycles, or many abandoned paddy fields which is now turned to Coconut palm fields. You can even visit the church installed by St. Thomas the Apostle on his visit to Kerala before 100 AD. Crossing the highway, it is just 20 minutes more to your favourite beach.
