There are watersports available at a reasonable rate. A lot of places to relax and enjoy yourself. Even though it was crowded we found a place where we could also... More

Not much swimming going on at this polluted inlet. Chinese Fishing Nets and seafood restaurants are the highlight of the beach area.

Away from the hustle bustle of town, it becomes full of people during evening and watching sunset is really cool... Though the beach ia not maintained well and a lot of trash can be seen, it is still worth a visit, if you are at Kochi

If you wish to avoid crowds, the beaches in north Cherai are for you - waters are calm and good for swimming.
