Kerala is among the most popular tourist destinations in India. How do we give a slightly offbeat spin to a place that is one of the most visited? In this trip to South Kerala, we wish to show you all that is authentic about the region and the locals. From experiencing the gorgeous sunset at Kanyakumari, to sitting at the quieter beaches of Varkala and staring at the ocean, to spending a day at a private island in the backwaters, we will try and make your South Kerala experience, a unique and memorable one.

Arrive in Trivandrum by noon. Start your drive towards Kanyakumari. Spend time at the beach in the evening. Overnight at Kanyakumari.

Day 2 - 29 Sep 2024

Wake up to a glorious sunrise at the tip of India. Legend has it that the diamond nose stud of Kanyakumari Bhagavathi deity is so shiny that it got mistaken for a lighthouse once!
Visit the Kanyakumari temple this morning. Enjoy a ferry ride on the ocean to
Vivekananda rock memorial and Thiruvalluvar statue. After lunch, drive to Munroe Island and settle down at your stay on a private island. Discover the island & enjoy the backwaters. Overnight at Munroe Island.

Day 3 - 30 Sep 2024

Explore Varkala, the only place in southern Kerala where cliffs are found adjacent to the Arabian Sea. If time permits, visit Anjengo Fort.

Day 4 - 01 Oct 2024

After breakfast, leave to visit Jatayu Earth’s Center which holds the distinction of having the world’s largest bird sculpture, which is of Jatayu.
