Cherai Beach is one of Cochin’s prized possessions and it is a place where nature has been very benevolent.
Situated about 20 kilometres from the main city, Cherai offers the perfect combination of golden sands at its beach line and peace and tranquillity at its backwaters.
Locals say that the population at Cherai and nearby has exploded over the years leading to huge crowds at the beach during the morning and evening hours.
But, they also mention that this population explosion hasn’t damaged the beauty of this place.
A short distance from the beach are the tranquil backwaters. One can see fishermen busy on these backwaters during the sunrise and sunset hours.
Then, we have the Cherai Beach Resorts that offer tourists the lovely option of enjoying both the backwaters and the beach by situating its property right between the two water bodies. The Kerala ayurvedic massages and the spa sessions are a speciality here and so is Toddy, the local Kerala brew.
