Accommodation was cheap. Football fans are fabulous

It was a pleasure to visit Cochin beach. It was a great moment to enjoy the culture of the place. The accommodation and food was worth. Spending time in different parts of Cochin was appriciable.

Nothing at the beach

It's just a beach. The tourism department needs to do something to attract visitors. Other than roaming on sand and touching the waters of the Arabian Sea, there's nothing else to do.

Good beach to visit

The beach is better than the Fort Kochi beach.The roads are some what crowded as it is inside the city.For seafood lovers, it's great but for veg people hard to survive.City bus connectivity is good.Hotel and restaurants are available at competitive rates.

Public beach

This beach is safe and secure. Many visitors are seen around. Security is also good. Near to food joints. All kinds of food - north Indian, south Indian, Kerala and chats like bajji are available. Transport is available outside the beach area. We can have nice time in the evenings.

Good for a short trip

Best beach near Cochin. Around 15 km away from Cochin Airport. Clean and safe beach. Try to be there in early morning, before sunrise to avoid bad weather. Evening must be crowded with local people always. A plenty of good hotels and restaurants are here. You can find good seafood here.

Cool wild Beach of Cherai

It's a cool but wild beach, the best destination to spend holiday. Lot of budget accommodation is also available here. Beach is so long that we can find our own place somewhere.

A common beach

I heard about this beach in Cochin so I went there but according to me there is nothing special, it's a common beach with no coconut trees with very limited restaurants and cafes, may be the beach is famous for any other thing but I don't know what, I think if anybody has plan to go to Kovalam beach then Cherai can be bypass, it is my personal opinion.

Endless waters!

An excellent beach. Quite clean. One of the good places in Kerala! Must visit!! Wherever you see, you get to watch endless waters, ships! Morning and evening is the best time to sit on the sea shore and just watch the waves come and go!!! These ENDLESS WATERS really give an end to your restlessness and make you calm!

Best Beach to bath, relax and view sunset

Cherai Beach, one of the best beach in Kochi. This beach makes you relax and fresh. If you go there you and were not aware about time. The beach is crowded but you could find a place to swim or to play or to sit. Get someone with you for a nice feel. You can enjoy the place. The sunset is superb. Buy a kite and spend some time on the wind. But beware if you are swimming please abide the guards. The way to Cherai is also awesome. There are a lot of resorts for you to spend. It's really awesome.
