“Most unusual for India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

You can tell why people are pleased to get here! Although you cant swim in the sea it's a very soothing sight, the fishing nets are majestic and an icon of the area and the place has a lively fish market where you can buy fish and get it freshly cooked. There are a few sellers too. If you like the Indian paintings there's a man who sells these, he paints them perhaps but the mini postcard paintings are lovely and 200 - 300 r.
Plenty of lovely looking places to eat and drink too.

“Not worth the time to journey there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

It is more for the locals to fleece the tourists. Nothing special. Place is too crowded, not well kept & lack any unique attraction. Best to avoid this place

“Needs to be cleaned!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The beach itself would have been beautiful if it was clean. It's dirty and not what you expect from a tourist attraction.

“Forget it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Fort Kochi beach is right behind the Dutch cemetery. The one from which you can see the Chinese fishing nets is called Mahatma Gandhi beach on maps. If you however plan to spend some time on Fort Kochi beach... well, I suggest you go elsewhere. In August it was rubbish and the cows freely roamed around the beach.
