Cherai Beach

Cherai Beach located 35 km away from Cochin, Kerala is one of the must see beaches for anyone touring Kerala. The place is a unique combination of sea and backwaters rimmed by lush green coconut palms and paddy fields. The backwaters are a combination of lakes, lagoons, canals and estuaries. This 15 km long beach is very clean, shallow and is ideal for swimming, surfing and sunbathing. The beautiful beach is studded with seashells of various hues and shapes. There is a park for children on the beach. Tourists and visitors can also ride the water-scooter and speedboats, which are available here on rent. One could catch an occasional glimpse of Dolphins as they spring out and dive back into the water. The far end of the beach is lined with Chinese fishing nets which is a beautiful sight by itself. Cherai is also popular for mouth lingering fresh sea food.
