Kappil Beach and lake
For anyone who has travelled in the Trivandrum-Kollam, Kappil is a place which you will never fail to notice. The magical interplay of land and water, the coconut tree covered islets; people using small country boats for commute and for fishing are images that will never leave your memory.

Kappil is the north-west border town of Thiruvananthapuram and it is 50 odd kilometers away from Trivandrum City and is located 7 Km North of the famous tourist destination, Varkala. This is the place where Backwaters & Beach can be seen together. The view is spectacular; on one side we have waves roaring on the beach and other side we see calm fresh water lake.

Kappil is one of the best kept secret of God’s own country and you really wish it to be like that. Kappil is a favorite place of the National Cadet Corps and regular parasailing and adventure water sports activities are held there under the aegis of Indian Air Force. “The soul of India lives in its villages“, declared M. K. Gandhi at the beginning of 20th century. As you wind up your day sojourn at this beautiful place, you realize that you have just found the India that touches your heart and stirs your soul! The amazing sights, sounds, smells and genuine people with a smile on their face...

A location not to be missed...
