Very nice calm beach. But a big NO in monsoon as the sea level will be very high and the whole beach will be covered by water most of the time.

Cherai beach is among the most sought after places for tourists coming to Kerala and a relaxing point for local people during weekends. Having an extended coastline the Cherai beach is different from many other beaches and it is well maintained, clean and hence well for sunbathing apart from swimming due to the shallow water. Being so near from the... More

Stayed in Fishermen Nest at Cherai. They picked us up from Cochin Airport. The special care at “Fishermen nest” with Kerala delicacies provided was excellent. The hospitality, care was really great. Visit to sea shore very convenient and comfortable. Me and my family will cherish this trip for a long time to come.

It is just ok because the beach is not so spacious although there is a stretched sea shore and also it wants to be more clean.the main attraction is that the beach comes after a charming lake and also one road goes across the lake which is really amazing and tantalizing and also we can see many Chinese fishing nets...

Cherai is an excellent choice for a Beach holiday north of Ernakulam. Early morning is the best time to spend. Women should not visit alone. Better even to have a male companion. Late evenings to be avoided.

The Cherai beach i a large expanse. one has to climb a wall across to enter the beach from opposite the resort. Lot of huge stones against the wall and there after the beach right to the sea opens up. you can just sit out on the wall or the boulders and gaze the evening away. must visit

The journey to the beach was nice. travelling through the road with water on both sides was a memoroble one. I went with my cousins to view the sun set. we reached at about 3:30. The sunlight was very warm. So we spend some time in a coffee shop. The coffee shop was little over expensive. For Expresso (normal) they... More

Its a beautiful beach to visit. It looks like kolba beach in Goa. However it lacks cleanliness. Government must pay attention and direct concerned authorities to keep it clean. Also it has insufficient public transport from main city. there must be direct buses to connect it to different parts of the city. during sunset one can get nice views and... More
