We've never been to Kerala, but been to Goa several times.

Are there any good beaches in and around Kochi?

Hi,

In and around Cochin, Cherai will be the best option. But if you are visiting Marai beach in Alleppey you can enjoy a day in houseboats and backwaters too.

There are lot many good rated accommodation in both Cherai and Marai beachs.

Cheers,

Hi Roods....

The beaches in and around the Cochin City of Kerala are the best places you can turn to, when you start feeling flustered after a vigorous sightseeing spree.

Beaches are > Cherai Beach, Fort Kochi Beach , Mararikulam beach are closer to Kochi

Each is unique in their own way

Marari beach is of the ‘endless-golden-sands-where-you-won’t -see-a-soul’ variety, usually touted for their peace and quiet of beaches. It is an endless vista of sand and surf, but it is more. An authentic experience of the world of Kerala’s traditional fishing villages, and a recreation of an ancient, harmonious way of life.Marari offers endless miles of superb sand beaches backed by swaying palms, virgin territory where you can experience to local charm and traditional keralan hospitality at its best.

Cherai Beach is a lovely beach bordering vypeen island is ideal for swimming. Dolphins are occasionally seen here. A typical kerala village with paddy fields and coconut groves nearby is an added attraction.

My take would be Marari as it gives a much more beachy experience

There are also few more beaches around Kochi which are not as well known like Andhakaranazhi beach etc. You can check some of the beaches at http://bit.ly/16rds1M
