Make sure that you are visiting this one in morning or evening and not in afternoon the mistake I myself made. Also if you are a tourist it would be better to visit this in December and January. Otherwise a nice beach with full of resorts. You may wish to hire one of the resort and spend a few days... More

Cherai is one of the most famous beaches in Ernakulam. Located not far from the city..this has been a go to place for children teens and adults alike. Evenings spent in cherai are always special and beautiful. Even the food you get there is unique and tasty!

This beach has very few tourists except for the ones staying in the resorts at Cherai Beach. It also has a lovely view of the backwaters on the way to the beach. Absolutely gorgeous.

Took another visit to this beautiful beach last week after a long long time ! The beach is very beautiful. You should go to the southern end of the beach to enjoy, since this place is not know to many tourists and is less crowded. The main beach can get crowded on holidays. The access to the southern part of... More

we enjoyed our time on the beach. ferry to Vipin and then local bus to beach is the fastest and most ecnomical mode from Fort Kochi. The bus drivers go really fast as if they are competing in some Formula racing. The Govt. needs to do something to encourage tourists to yhis spot as it is without any facilities.

Quiet beach with not much crowd. There are locals in the evening. There are hardly any shacks so one has to return to the resort for shower etc. The beach was clean and the water was not wild.

Cherai Beach is popular due to it proximity to Kochi. Its a long stretch of beach, though the initial stretch is very crowded. If you drive further away, you get to the more quiet and less commercial parts of the beach, which honestly is my preference. There are several restaurants along the beach road that serve good seafood.
