Located in extreme north of kochi , it was close to the vypin island where our resort was located. We visited to catch the sunset. The beach was nice with a good crowd. The sand was bit murky and slope quite steep. Not good for swimming or water sports. One lifeguard was keeping vigil. We enjoyed the sunset and the... More

During the day it is fine. It is the ONLY beach I saw in India that is cleaned every day!!! Unfortuneately due to the evening coaches (nearly... More

The beach closest to Kochi city it is more than an hour by road, passing though some narrow roads with densely populated areas. Much of the beach has been cordoned off by rocks so there is not much left by way of a beach now. There are much better beaches in Kerala.

The Chinese fishing nets look super at sunset. The locals , everyone, seem to walk along the beach path at sunset. There are food stalls, and a festive feel.i think this May have been because of the Christmas season. Trying to get good photos of the nets meant having to walk through rubbishy areas but worth it.

Cherai is located approx 30 kms from Cochin city and is usually missed by the travellers. This is however a very beautiful beach where one can either soak in the sun or enjoy the beautiful sunset.

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".
