The fish market and other vendors were flat out selling their wares to one and all in this glorious setting on a warm January day. Loved it, especially the Chinese fishing nets.

Perhaps I went on a low peak season. No crowd and few hotels around Cherai.Nothing much to do. The street was kinda dirty. I wouldnt recommend a stay here.

Very nice place! There are a lot of people come to the beach walking on weekends, it's a little bit noisy but very colorful and interesting.

Just wonderful! Very few people on the beach. No one blocks the view of the sea. In about 3 hrs only 5 people passed me by. 👍👍 But beer is not allowed on the beach.👎 maybe for safety reasons but just 1 pint of chilled beer would make it more wonderful.😁😁

I have read its only worth a visit and the beach poor. Not so, its a great relaxation place to stay and a great place to end your holiday if you have been rushing around.

It's a very long sandy beach, very nice if you like to walk along the sea. On a hot day, carry an umbrella and wear sunscreen, because there is no shade to be found. There are some restaurants along the road which is parallel to it.

A lovely experience to see the views over the water. It is quite dirty with lots of litter . Many market stalls. Very friendly local people. Atmospheric. Lovely views at sunset. Can take a boat across the bay. Or sunset cruise
