So much rubbish and pollution ruins the area! Very sad to see.. The backdrop of industry is also not very pretty.. They need to clean the beach and front waters up!

You can see a number of the nets whilst walking along the shore. Interesting to watch the locals catch their fish for the day and then sell them.

The Chinese fishing nets are good to watch and admire the hardwork and techniques of those times. Since watching it if free so you can go around , keep munching food, and drinking coconut water. One time visit is good.

Now these are differently designed fishing nets with the help of full fledged bamboo apparatus at the beach of Fort Kochi. This is a tradional style of fishing and it looks beautiful when the fishermen down their nets into the sea around 5 in the evening. Must visit!

Your expectation might be too high for the attraction. the place is touristic and dirty.. The heart is breaking seeing how many garbage are on the beach. Very sad.
