Canoeing, Kayaking, Sailing, waterskiing, white water rafting, wind surfing… with 900km backwater stretch, 44 rivers originating from the Sahyadri hills and several beaches, Kerala is a dream come true for water sport enthusiasts. While canoeing and kayaking can be enjoyed along the serene backwaters- which is also the venue for the spectacular snake boat races for the State, catamaran sailing is possible at the beaches of Alappuzha, Varkala and Kovalam. Parasailing is gaining popularity with the Varkala and Alappuzha beaches offering platform, beach and winch boat parasailing. For wind surfing, the beaches of Kovalam and Varkala are the best bet, while the backwaters offer great scope for speed boating and bamboo rafting.
