The title captures the essence, although I emphasize it again - it is most certainly one of the best beaches that you'll find in India. Enjoy the view from one of the sea facing resorts along side the beach...not to mention that the trip would be incomplete without sampling the scrumptious food. Clean, like most of the rest of the...

It's a long beach and apt for a long long long romantic walk duringsun set. However the beach is a little crowded at some spots. But if u re little adventurous, you can walk along and reach a more lonely spot. Being a long stretch, the beach offers space for everyone anyway :)

The beach itself is rubbish strewn and smelly. The good at the mud to high end restaurants were average at best. The auto ride from fort kochi to the beach was long and bumpy due to the bad roads.

had the opportunity to visit Cherai beach several times. It is a nice beach to be with family. surrounded by backwaters. It is crowded on week ends, so ideal to visit during weekdays. a clean beach and you get good food in nearby restaurants.

It was one of the best beaches we visited in the South of India. At first when we arrived it was crowded, but if you go about 1km away (to the left or to the right), you can just rest in absolute peace. There was only my friend and I, nature and sea. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Cherai is about 25 Kms from Kochi city. Has small hotels and homestays next to the beach. The beach is clean and a good place to be. Did'nt see any sporting activity. Tip: eat at the Beach restaurants, they serve some great food but service is slow

Not so easy to get to, we took an autorickshaw, the guy was very nice and took us through some interesting places on the way back, areas where they farm tiger prawns, lovely little lanes in backwaters. The beach itself is beautiful, unspoilt and mostly wild apart from one small area where there are holiday lodgings. The sea is quite... More
