Mararikulam is a very peaceful and romantic beach village in the district of Alleppey, practically untouched by modernity and looking exactly as it would be hundred years ago. It got its name from Lord Shiva (locally called Marari). It’s a paradise for nature lovers and a morning stroll is a fine way to introduce yourself to the Malabar Coast’s unique ecosystem and explore its myriad charms. Just to give you a taste, you can expect to find 97 species of butterflies and more than 350 species of endemic plants. Marari also is rated as one of the world’s top five hammock beach by National Geographic survey.
Mararikulam has its own railway station and the nearest rail head is Alleppey at 16 km. Nearest airport is Cochin at 75 km.
It’s a dream house of Shibu which he built in 2015. Located hardly 200 mtr from the beach, is a great hide out for your tranquil leisure. It’s a blissful home, having 2 AC and 2 Non AC well-furnished cozy guest rooms with attached western style toilets. There is a tastefully done common sitting area where you can do reading, chat with the family or enjoy a hot coffee. There also is a garden where you can do morning exercise, meditation or yoga. O yeah, there is rain shower also in the garden.
