Vypeen Island in Kochi

The Portuguese have a close relation with Kerala's past and this is evident from a simple visit to Vypeen Island. They developed this small island, which is a part of Kochi, which is today a bustling tourist town. To this day, certain locals can be seen speaking with dialects that have a direct influence from the Portuguese. Its beaches are loved by all our visitors and these form some of the longest stretches in the State. Cherai Beach, Kuzhuppilly Beach and the Puthuvype Beach, regularly draw in tourists and locals alike.

Another lovely aspect of the island is its unexplored parts which truly delight trekking aficionados and adventure seekers who stumble upon the area. Set out on its terrain and you never know what may show up. Lighthouses, secluded beaches and fishing communities, all await those with their hearts and minds prepared for a unique journey through an island that has managed to hold on to its old world charm.
