As per officials with the district tourism promotion council (DTPC), the number of tourists visiting various destinations has gone up. “It is during weekends that more people turn up. Tourists, especially domestic travellers, visit various destinations like beaches,” said an official with the DTPC. “After a couple of months, we expect more flow of tourists from north Indian states,” the official added.

The water sports facility at Munambam was reopened on Wednesday. “There is very good response from the tourists. Activities at Munambam include skiing, surfing, banana ride, catamaran ride, kayaking, etc. It is the only beach in the area with such activities. The beach is very spacious with facility for parking,” said another DTPC official.

The DTPC, in partnership with a private partner is all set to start a kayaking facility and eco-friendly cottages at AluvaManappuram.
