Cherai Beach, Kochi


Around two dozen kilometers from the industrial district of Ernakulam and to the side of the Vypeen Island lies every swimmer’s paradise, Cherai Beach. It is a favourite haunt of those looking for a relaxing swim with the backdrop of coconut groves being the added incentive. It provides a wonderful view of the famous Chinese fishing nets as well. The nearby shacks provide you with fresh cuisine too.

The seashells found here are unique and one often runs into dolphins in this area. It is a splendid combination of both the backwaters and the sea. The area itself has seen many new resorts and hotels crop up which have facilitated the increase in activity. Today it is amongst the most visited beaches in Kerala with a view that makes it hard to leave once you get there.
