Each place is known for its beauty and serenity.

One such place is the Muzhapilangad beach that is about 15 kms from Kannur and 8 kms from Thalasseri in North Kerala. The beach stretches across four kilometers of sand and is a drive-in beach where one can drive down the entire length. The main attraction of the place is that it is secluded, unexplored, calm and serene and brings one away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are huge black rocks scattered across the long beach, which prevent deep currents. A tranquil pool of shallow waters is formed making it ideal for swimmers. The beach is fringed by palm grooves that provide shade from the tropical sun.

Another beautiful place is the backwaters of Alappuzha. Alappuzha is also known as the Venice of the East. The famous things in Alappuzha are the boat races, backwaters, beaches, marine products and the coir industry. Alappuzha beach is very famous among the tourists. A pier of over 137 years old extends into the sea. There are a number of entertainment facilities at the Vijaya Beach Park which add more attraction to the beach. Another major attraction in Alappuzha is the houseboat. They were originally used as means of transporting rice and spices. But now furnished houseboats are used by tourists for the purpose of site seeing.
