Hello
I was wondering where the best beaches were in Kerala if you were looking to rent a hut for a month on the beach. I am thinking white sand and good food and a clean rustic beach house. thanks in advance

Unless you head to the islands, I think India is all brownish grey sand. No coral close to the coast.

The sand here is reddish-golden, err, sand coloured.

I don't rate the beaches very highly though.

Some of the beaches close to Mahabalipuram looked very clean, and cream if not coral white. Nick would know better.
See these pics:

Anyway, that is not in Kerala.

If you want to pm Vandy, I think he posted somewhere about a beach near Allepey. Not sure, but worth a search.

Marmallapuram has beige-yellow sand and is fairly clean by the middle of the day - ie. once the waves have washed away morning poos and all that healthy sunshine has baked things clean. Just avoid the shore temple end of the beach, which is a very popular toilet place at any time of the day because there are lots of large rocks to hide behind.... including ones with carvings that were part of ancient temples

But, as with most Indian beaches, you quickly learn to spot the signs of a popular toilet venue. For example, if there are rocks and they're covered in a rich growth of fluoro-green seaweed, you've hit jackpot ...... run!

There are some extremely beautiful beaches about an hour south of Mangalore.
In a place called Kasaragod.
Nice hotels and guest houses, and really quiet and lovely beaches, serious relaxing. I hope that's what you wanted.

I can also recommend that you DON'T go exploring around the big rocks by the river crossing at Hampi. Apoocalyptic.
