We took a tuktuk from Fort Kochi - (800 rupees) and spent a relaxing afternoon on the beach. We had a quick lunch and a couple of beers at the Baywatch Hotel. Interesting architecture, but good service and lunch was nice. The beach stretches in miles in each direction. There are backwaters just behind the beach- so you get to... More

Its a nice, decently clean family-time beach in Kochi. It has all good hotels along the beach. Like place to hangout, watch sunsets and even do water sports. The vibe is not as colourful as Goa but its still good.

The beach is about 25 k.ms. from Kochi and a good no. of home stays are available in this location. The beach has been beautified by the Tourism Dept of Government of Kerala to attract more visitors, Watching Chinese nets and sun set is quite interesting. Nearby Munambam beach is also worth visiting especiaily in the evening. North Paravur is... More

Take a stride along the small tract of Vypeen Cherai beach by walking along the raised platform built around the shore. One can watch the seabirds preying and playing besides the huge Chinese nets cast to catch fish.

My dad would always call this Parur beach. I cannot count how many times I have visited this beach as I belong to Parur. Every time we had guests we would visit the beach and every vacation we would visit with all my cousins. The place is awesome! Sunsets are beautiful. The way to the beach is too beautiful with...

If I was in charge of Kochi beach I would give everyone who throws rubbish bin bags and make them clean up the beach. I know it's a huge problem all over India (hopefully being addressed through schools) but the beach could have been stunning if it weren't for litter/rubbish everywhere. There are some little bins every so often but... More
