Running parallel to the Arabian Sea, Kerala has a 600 km long coastline. The Kerala beaches are untouched and excellent for family vacations. While one would bet a fortune for the sunrises and sunsets by the beach, you and especially the kids can also enjoy the various ranges of beach activities and water sports such as parasailing, beach volleyball, windsurfing and more. The Cherai and Kovalam beaches are ideal for these activities which can be explored with a family holiday to Kerala.
In addition to the activities related to the beach, one can enjoy the boating experiences at the seashores and rivers that kids would love. Kerala backwaters are popular for amazing boat rides and boathouses. You can book a boathouse to stay for a day with your family which will be a completely different adventure. For instance, Alleppey is popular for serene houseboat stays.
Wildlife reserves and national parks such as Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary are some of the places for kids to enjoy. Make sure to keep the camera battery charged as you’ll have a great time clicking pictures of the animals enjoying themselves in the natural habitat. Kerala has six national parks and various wildlife sanctuaries, which are sufficient enough to indulge your kids in wildlife safari and other activities such as sanctuaries and parks. Also, make sure to try the elephant training center situated in Kodanand where kids will have a memorable time feeding as well as bathing baby elephants. Enjoy the vacation with family tour packages.
Existing in the complete harmony with the natural beauty of the place is its ancient culture. From general occupation to food and the culture, Kerala is wholly new to explore for children while on a family holiday to Kerala. Tours in a village and island hopping are the best ways to know the life of locals.
Kerala has many tea plantations in Munnar as well as Idukki where the family can pick tea and enjoy fresh flavors. Also, make sure to take your kids to the ancient temples and cathedrals that they might not even find in the history books.
