One of the few beaches that is left off commercialization, beautiful beach a short drive from Kalamassery or Cochin. For Cochin people specially who are midst of a traffic chaos, this certainly provides a great get away.

Unlike Kovalam, this place is more peaceful, with less disturbance. The breeze is very pleasant and the waves are soft.

Calm and quiet beach in the vicinity of kovalam...ideal for relaxing and sun bath. Scenic beach...a bit dirty though. Also the ride to the beach is gonna b a bit bumpy...but its worth the effort

The beach at chowara is a mess and it was sad to see that in gods own country the people of the area did nothing to clean up. It has so much potential

This is a long white sandy beach where you can see lines of fishermen pulling in their nets. You can see gorgeous sunsets. It is clean and undeveloped unlike the nearby Kovalam beaches. I loved the Kashmiri shops and local ayurveda clinics. The only drawback is there are no local food outlets as there are in the more touristy areas... More

It's difficult to rate Chowara beach as parts of it (the parts outside of the hotels) are very clean and lovely. Other parts are an environmental nightmare with discarded plastics and other litter. The beaches in Goa were definitely cleaner.

The calm and isolated location and the scenic setting makes the Chowara beach an excellent place to visit. Not at all commercialised.
