That is why we say Kerala honeymoon, which is close to nature, is a smart decision for all the newlyweds who want to have a great time without putting a hole in your pocket.
The famed water world, sunny beaches, mist-clad hill stations, spectacular waterfalls, rivers, towns with Colonial imprints and calm and quiet towns and rural life all these make Kerala one of the best places in the world to spend your honeymoon.
Each and every region has something or the other to offer you. So make a plan and decide the destinations you want to enjoy. Here are some tips for you.
If you are in the Southern Kerala you could enjoy the beaches, backwaters and trekking.
Ponmudi- the hill station in the capital city - is a great place for trekking and hiking. The lush forests, rivulets, wildlife, Echo Point, alluring valleys, Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary, Meenmutty waterfalls are all the major attractions. You could stay at the nearby resort for a couple of days to enjoy all these natural wonders.
From there move to one of the beach towns of the region. Kovalam or Varkala will be a great option to revel in the sun and the waves.
Visit the Kappil beach which is about 10 km away from Varkala - a place where the scenic backwaters meet the Arabian Sea. There is a boat club nearby which offers water sports services, including speed boats.
If you want to include the backwaters of Kerala into your itinerary, then head to Kollam where houseboat services are available. You could enjoy an overnight stay in the houseboat and take a romantic stroll along the beach and the Tangasseri Breakwater.
A few km from Kollam is the picturesque island called Munroe Island which is at the confluence of Ashtamudi Lake and the Kallada River. The island has got many canals and inland waterways and you could enjoy boating, fishing and watch migratory birds here. The Palaruvi waterfall is also a tourist spot.
If Kuttanad and its surrounding regions are what you want to enjoy with your spouse then it includes the Alappuzha backwaters, hill stations such as Munnar, Vagamon, Thekkady, Peerumedu etc.
Alappuzha is one of the best places in the world that is nothing short of a paradise. After exploring the region in a houseboat head to the hills of Munnar and enjoy the cool climate, the mist-laden mountains, wildlife, waterfalls, and the aromatic plantations. Take a boat cruise through the Periyar River which surrounds the Periyar Tiger Reserve in Thekkady.
Kochi which is on the banks of the Arabian Sea is another place that offers the great combination of backwaters, beaches and cultural heritage. The roaring waterfalls of Athrappilli are about 70 km from Kochi and a great place to be close to the mystic ways of nature.
In the north, there are the green covered mountains and the hill station called Wayanad. The district is totally nestled in the hills, with many mountain streams, wildlife, waterfalls and a great climate throughout the year. There is also the pre-historic cave in Edakkal and the place is famous for the aromatic spices.
After having a great stay at a wooded resort or enjoy the spectacular views from a tree house head to Bekal see the enchanting sight of the waves of the Arabia Sea hitting the walls of the Bekal Fort.
