Unique and interesting. Nice place to spend your time in the evening. There is park near to it. With lots of local shops around. You can buy some local stuff out there and also taste some local snacks. Small shops having good and cheap stuff.

Nothing like a cruise along the Kochi coastline. There are many tour operators who can give a good standard boat ride; but a private boat operator would be more flexible and give you a more customised tour.

You can access the Chinese Fishing nets at various points around the harbour, but the best photos are probably best taken from one of the harbour cruisers. To catch them working you'll need to be there at the tide change. The owners are quite happy to show you how they work and have the tourist photos taken. As usual a... More

Went around there in the evening - so could not see any fishing using the nets The place is not maintained well and needs more face lift towards neatness Always visit this only during morning as i heard that there will be fishing activists around - Food options are not so good and only local foods (road side shops )...

I myself belong to Bengal and have seen various methods of fishing. But these Chinese Fishing nets were quite different and interesting and will be visible to you as soon as you are in and around Kochi.

The chinese fishing nets are different and unique than any other fishing nets. The fisherman need not go to deep sea for catching the fish, instead it is near to the shore. But the shore is not clean, cleaniness is very much required here as many foriegn tourists visit this place as part of their itenary.

If you are visiting Kochi you must visit Fort Kochi as it is a small iceland away from the city noise and pollution. You can walk down to the fishing nets to see the unique way of fishing and experience the cool sea breeze
