A Tiny Island In Kerala Has Made It To NatGeo’s World Destinations List


Kakkathuruthu is a tiny island in the Alappuzha district of Kerala. This island has become world famous after being listed in National Geographic’s ‘Around the World in 24 Hours’.

Thanks to its picturesque evenings and twilight seascape, this island has found its way into the list of travel-worthy places around the world. As per Nat Geo, the stunning sunset at Kakkathuruthu is probably one of the best in the world.

With the sun soaking up the place in its serene rays, the island becomes a crescendo of colours during sunset. The island, surrounded by the Vembanad Lake is a haven for birdwatchers and is accessible only by boat.

The village life here moves at a leisurely pace as it is unspoilt by consumerism. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this place must feature on your itinerary. Visitors can engage in rustic activities like farming, fishing, toddy tapping and boat riding.
