This place is superb to have a evening walk and to have a boating ... there is a boating club in kappil - priyadharsini boating club - striving to move forward due to lack of funds ... but dont forget to visit this place ... really superb ...

Kappil Lake is an amazing attraction. The scenic beauty is just marvellous. The best place is the part where the sea meets the lake. The beach there is clean and was not overcrowded. Safari Boat is available for a tour (1 Hour Rs 1000 , 40 mins Rs. 800 and 20 mins Rs 600). A must visit with friends.

Kappil is a hidden gem. Not many tourists, and its very pretty. Cleaner than Varkala. However, please note that there is no accommodation near by. You can visit Kappil as a day trip, spend about 4 hrs or so and return back to Varkala. There are some resorts, but they are not functional and I would'nt recommend staying there.

It was awesome to watch the sea meet the lake at this beach. I got some wonderful pictures of fishermen fishing out here. Plus the surf looked really beautiful. Most of the seaward side is blocked off by the rocks but the rest is good.

Beautiful and scenic....the kappil Lake suddenly opens up into the angry sea. The roads and bordered with coconut tree and small bridges to cross over. We can see a big number of fishermen with their nets.
