Our country is studded with some of the most breath-taking beaches in the world. Other than pristine sands, ultramarine waters, thrilling water sports and palm trees, there are beaches which have a lot more to offer to the tourists. Most of them offer splendid isolation, while others provide a picturesque view of alluring villages that haven’t changed in decades. As the temperature will rise for the next few months, I thought it’s time to reveal these stunning beaches remain less crowded even on a holiday weekend.
I have picked up some amazing offbeat beaches with unique characteristics!
1. Ezhimala Beach, Kerala-
This beach is the home of one of India’s largest naval academies. It is located 55km away from Kannur, Ezhimala which is serene seaside heaven in Kerala. Ezhimala beach is the pride of India.

The sand at this beach is of different texture and also the water is bluer than the sky. The other tourist attractions near Ezhimala Beach are Lord Hanuman Temple and the Mount Deli Light House (it is currently maintained by Indian Navy and is now restricted).
Do you know that this beach has featured in Sangam-era literature and the Ramayana? Yes for you information, Ezhimala beach is also an important historical site in India. Ezhimala beach gets its name from Ezhimala hill station. This is the reason, why tourists who visit the hill station also visit this beach.
2. Tip Beach, Lakshadweep-
Lakshadweep is the only place in India where you can find a coral reef formation. They are multi-hued and very beautiful. The water is so clear that you can actually see through it to where the vibrant reefs are. The presence of corals makes the water shallow and easy to wade into for novice swimmers and children. The rich marine life and the fantastic coral reef formation only add to the mystique of the islands. Do remember that picking up corals is a crime punishable by law, so fight the temptation.
Kalpeni Island is one of the emerald isles of Lakshadweep. Tip beach lies literally at the northern tip of Kalpeni Island. This beach is absolutely clean and contains white sand. This beach is absolutely perfect for those who want to luxuriate in the lap of untouched nature. If you are opting for Scuba dive in Kalpeni, this is the place, where they will make you dive. From tranquil tropical waters to coral filled rock pools, the views are just extraordinary and with no time you’ll fall in love with the place. Being low tide, we were able to walk long distances in to the beach and we enjoyed our time a lot.
