Like all villages, it has evolved naturally, in 'picturesque disorder'. The huts are slapdash adobe, thatched with palm and tied with coir or coconut rope. Neat and scrupulously clean footpaths veer between the huts; while everywhere, the pungent scents of the sea mingle with the fragrance of coconut, oil and spice. Marari originates from "Mararikulam", one of the local fishing villages, where life still goes on much as it did a hundred years ago, with the men going out to sea each day to earn a living bringing in the daily catch. Completely new to the holiday maker. Marari offers endless miles of superb sand beaches backed by swaying palms, virgin territory where you can experience the local charm/and traditional Kerala Hospitality at it's best.
