Cherai beach is a unique combination of the sea and the backwaters, studded with seashells of various hues and shapes. “The Cherai Beach is lined with lots of coconut trees giving the feeling of being on a stranded island. There are no activities on the beach like Goa but if you want a calm, relaxing place then this beach is the best.” shares HolidayIQ traveller Milan Suthar.
