Although Tellicherry is not usually considered to be “on the tourist trail” that is actually part of its charm.  This coastal town offers a glimpse of the genuine Keralan way of life, and boasts an enchanting, long, sandy beach. The markets of Tellicherry are definitely worth a visit for their good sea food, vegetables and quality fabrics.  Visit bidi rolling factories, textiles mills and the local temples where, if the dates are right, one can witness authentic temples performances which are performed for the locals, rather than the tourist versions in the hotels.
