We did an afternoon trip from Kumarakom to Alleppy on the beach.
Obviously a popular spot for sunset. We found a quiet inlet where a couple of locals and their kids were enjoying a family afternoon in the beachside hut. We also saw some fishermen coming back with their catch and pulling up the old canoe onto the beach.
Around the other side, the beach was more crowded and they had camel rides at sunset. Sunset was stunning.
