Nothing much to see here - especially on a sunny day. We drove all the way here and took an immediate U turn. Not recommended in March afternoons!

This was our first experience of climbing a lighthouse. Sure enough, it was an exciting one. From the top, we were able to see a huge distance (naturally!). The beach view from the top was stunning. Better to visit in late evenings so that it is not very hot. There is a small museum in the complex. It's worth visiting... More

Another nice attraction, if one has their own transport. This location has to be one of many in a day trip.

While spending time along the canals in the old residential area of Allappey one of our delights was watching the sun rise over the Alappuzha lighthouse and walking along the nearby beach watching the local residents dipping their feet in the surf. Early mornings and evenings is the best time to enjoy this area for photo taking

it is worth a trip up the lighthouse for the view to the sea and countryside. Be warned though that I was pick pocketed here. Fortunately I knew the culprit and was able to get my monies back. Beware a lurking presence behind you when climbing the stairs.

Light house in alappuzha is located close to the alappuzha beach. We reached this place on Monday which was a holiday. So we were not allowed to enter into the light house. But we can just roam iver the sides and can take nice clicks. altogether it's a good place to spend some time...

We visited this place bang at time of mid day closure 11.45 am. However the attendant allowed us to enter the premises. It was hot and humid. Climbed up 105 steps and the views were worth such hard work coming to top. The museum has some old gadgets. In all a good experience.
