With casuarinas trees providing shade and the beach facing Ezhimala, Chootad Beach remains, however, little noticed in the tourist map of Kerala. It shares its borders with a river on one side and sea on the other – a rare sight indeed. 286 metres above, Ezhimala gives a mesmerizing sight from the beach. The clean sea shore and surroundings attract many tourists here.
Under the aegis of the District Tourism Promotion Council, there is a beach park and other facilities. In the river near the beach there are facilities for pedal boats and speed boats. On walking in between the casuarinas trees and reaching the top, there are facilities to sit and relax with the soothing breeze.
