Andhakaranazhy is a coastal Andhakaranazhi Beach, Alappuzha under Cherthala Taluk. It is famous for its beach which draws a number of domestic and international tourists. Geography an azhy much like an isthmus, is a sand sedimentation fashioned with the aid of the consistent motion of seawater where the backwaters merge into the ocean. Two barges having massive mechanized shutters are erected close to the north and south quit of the azhy. These shutters, operated through traction motors, assist to modify the float of saline water getting into the neighboring paddy fields of Thuravoor, Pattanakkad, Ezhupunna, and Kuthiathode panchayats related to the backwaters Kuthiathode.
Water is released into the sea through lifting those shutters to save you flooding in these paddy fields all through immoderate rains. A tall and majestic lighthouse close to the azhy stands like a sign tower guiding the seamen for the duration of night. This lighthouse was open to the general public in the course of Onam, but is confined now. This vicinity is also one of the famous locations for Malayalam film shoots. TransportationOne can reach Andhakaranazhy through the Thanky – Andhakaranazhy – Pallithode beach street or divert towards west at Padmakshi-Kavilpalli junction on NH forty seven between Pattanakkad and Thuravoor.
