Somewhere near Kayamkulam I guess. The roads which run parallel to the sea are great for top down drives ( top down = open top cars ). We had a meet at Alapuzha sometime back and the route was similar.

Lovely place. Kerala or coastal Karnataka? I think the amby in the pic has KL registration, so it must be Kerala. Where exactly?

Nice pictures. I think I've been here for shooting Mercedes. Also I think that road to this approach has sea and back water on the sides. If I remember correct we went there via Quilon.

Rudra, I think you are talking about Paravoor/Edava ( near Varkala)

Nice pictures, seems to me that this is somewhere in between Kayamkulam and Karunagapally!

Hi,

That is exacly why I did not mention the place.

It is Kappil beach about 25 to 30 kms from Kollam. You have to take a right at Chathanur on the NH47 south of Kollam.

This is the point where the backwaters meet the sea.

First visit, we got late and reached only at 1730 hours.

And I have put up all the photos. Sorry.

Thanks for appreciating the photos.
