Route to lake is good but beach itself is not worth it. Its far from city and crowd is not so great to relax.

Awesome place with the combination of backwater and beach . It could have been developed to attract plenty of tourist who cost Varkala Sivagiri and Varkala cliff.

Can be developed as weekend family place with restaurants, children play area, carnival many more. Lovely place for water sports like kayaking, windsurfing, jet ski, paragliding so on. So sad that the local government is not interested on developing this area.

I’ve been to the beautiful backwaters in Aleppo last year so I wanted to visit also Kappi lake’s backwaters.

I was aware that the backwaters in Kappi are less interesting (Quite small, no turist, no facilities) then Aleppo but we tryed as well.

If you want to do the same, be aware, that either the local boats renting either the taxi/tuc tuc drivers here tend to take your money in a very unfair way.

first the tuc tuc driver, drivers you in kappi to the only boat rent available(where he gets a percentage): Swim Adventure and water sports where they ask you a high price with no possibility of discount.

Finally we agreed to pay and they gave us back a piece of 500 broken which here nobody can spend.

We got aware of that just when we tryed to payed the tuc tuc driver that did not accepted this money.

Moral of the story? Go to Aleppo, and if you go to kappi lake don’t use the service of boat rental.

Beautiful Kappil lake on one side of the road and Arabian sea on the other. Drove by this place, did not go for boating. I am sure an evening boat ride at the lake would be worth it.

30min boat ride around the lake - it’s the beach nearby that’s the real attraction but if you’ve made it out to Kappil you might as well hop on the boat
