#3 of 10 in Parks in Alappuzha
Andhakaranazhy is a coastal village located 4 km west of Pattanakkad under Pattanakkad Panchayath under Cherthala Taluk. It is famous for its beach which draws a number of domestic and international tourists.GeographyAn azhy similar to an isthmus, is a sand sedimentation formed by the constant action of seawater where the backwaters merge into the sea. Two barges having large mechanized shutters are erected near the north and south end of the azhy. These shutters, operated by traction motors, help to regulate the flow of saline water entering into the neighboring paddy fields of Thuravoor, Pattanakkad, Ezhupunna, and Kuthiathode panchayats connected to thbackwatersKuthiathode]]. Water is released into the sea by lifting these shutters to prevent flooding in these paddy fields during excessive rains. A tall and majestic lighthouse near the azhy stands like a signal tower guiding the seamen during night. This lighthouse was open to the public during Onam, but is restricted now. This place is also one of the popular locations for Malayalam film shoots.TransportationOne can reach Andhakaranazhy via the Thanky – Andhakaranazhy – Pallithode beach road or divert towards west at Padmakshi-Kavilpalli junction on NH 47 between Pattanakkad and Thuravoor.

  • It is very good for spending evening times.more than 500 people visiting every day. Swimming is not possible for monsoon time. I think these waves are good for surfing.
  • Nice beach to swim for common men & women, with no charges... Plan for an outing in the afternoon, to reach around 4.00 pm, have a relaxed beach bath, leave by 6.30 or so happily to catch up for dinner at nearby hotels...
  • Nice beach and nice water... Not having so rush on Sunday also..
  • i love this place lot. always will be memorable one
  • Its a nice beach. The best time to visit this place is evening. You can enjoy the sunset. In the evening time, you can buy the fresh fish from the fishermen directly.
