Photo Spot Details
Cherai beach is amongst the must-visit places for anyone touring parts of South India. Having a coastline of 15 kms, the Cherai beach is different from many beaches in the sense that it is very clean and shallow and thus, ideal for the purpose of swimming and sunbathing. Being so near from the main Kochi city, an important commercial capital of Kerala, the Cherai beach is an enticing option for anybody who wants to get away from the din of city life momentarily. Particularly, people come to see the beautiful sunset from the beach and during rainy seasons, the dying rays of the Sun paints the cloudy sky with beautiful hues and colors.
Occasionally, people also see dolphins in the water. Cherai Beach is rightly considered as one of the most beautiful beaches in Kerala. It is a beautiful combination of sea and backwaters rimmed by lush green coconut palms and paddy fields. There is also a park for children on the beach. Tourists and visitors can also ride the water-scooter and speedboats, which are available here on rent. There are also a number of lodges and hotels in this area where you can put up. Generally, there is a lot of rush at the beach during the holidays.
You can also do lot of people/candid photography particularly those who love monochrome (like me) as there are photo-opportunities galore here…
