Please do not venture to be on the beach on a weekend. Plenty of locals and trouble makers are around taking a dip and making all possible non-sense on the beach. Visit this beach early morning on a week day for the feel of the "Serene surrounding".

Cherai beach is quite the worst beach I have visited in Kerala. Although the sand is soft, and the waves not as rough as other beaches, these advantages are overwhelmed by the amount of litter lying around. There are used alcohol bottles everywhere and I even saw broken light bulbs in the sand. The litter improves as you walk towards... More

Horrible beach, dirrrty waters, too crowded avoid the long drive to reach here. Opt for the Marari Beach instead for the quiet, clean waters, deep blue sea

This is a natural beach which is formed and washed out again and again many times in a year. The freshness is awesome. the munambam harbour is nearby. There are lot resorts nearby... More

As there are not many visitors, this long stretch of island beach is still calm and beautiful. Heap of boulders separate the road from beach. It is better to visit the beach either in the morning or in the evening. Otherwise, you will be burnt by scorching sun. Avoid staying long after sun set, for security reasons. There are speedboats...

Great sunset view. Excellent place to talk a long evening walk while getting a great view of the Arabian sea.
