Hello,

I will be doing the Cochin-Munnar-Periyar-Kottayam intinerary in 9 days. I wanted to include a beautiful tropical beach. My Indian friend thinks that Varkala is too far and not worth it, instead I should stay at Alapuzha beach. However, I read it is not good for swimming because the local fisherman use it as a toilet. How concerned should I be about it? Is it still worth to go to Varkala?? Please advise.

I was at beach in Mamallapuram, Alapuzha, Varkala, Gokarna. Every beach was used as a toilet. I saw using a beach as toilet even at Mauritius.
I liked swimming at Alapuzha. I remember I talked with a guard from the beach and he told me that it is more safety beach for swimming in Kerala. Varkala was more beatiful.

I wish good swimming.

The best clean beach in Alapuzha... which has less crowd too is Marari Beach at mararikulam
