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

I think my title sums up my opinion of the place. Lovely beaches that could turn treacherous, crowded and at places dirty. Get wonderful seafood - fresh and cooked for you. Access is easy.

this is heaven in God's own country. the water is sparklingly clean. the waves are safe for kids to play. fresh fish from the sea is cooked and served. it is a safe place for families and ladies travelling alone. suggestion is to book rooms ahead of time and go early to the beach so that you get maximum fun....

Here is a hotel which is consistently given reviews that suggest it is absolutely dreadful and to be avoided at all costs. Whoever, at no point has the establishment made any comment whatsoever. Usually they says things "like I am sorry you were disappointed. We will endeavour to do better etc." That sort of stuff. This lot... Silence!! Wonder Why???... More

The beach is neat and crowded on weekends. However it is a great place to relax. There are many resorts along the beach road that have good restaurants.

When we visited there was a bloated dead dog on the beach which looked as though it had been there for some time. There were also lots of discarded bottles and general rubbish. The fact that there are very few rubbish bins around doesn't help the problem. This could be a nice beach with a bit of a clean up.... More
