Stroll along the shoreline to reach Fort Kochi, home to one of the oldest churches built by Europeans in India. After cooling off in the water, grab something to eat at one of the many nearby restaurants serving fresh seafood.

  • Its more exiting if you read a bit of history about how those Chinese fishing net came to India from China.. Its more than a place to see these tradition rather than a beach...Cause the beach is not v...  more »

  • This beach is treat to the eyes. You can't enjoy waves or playing in the waves like all other beaches but you can sit and enjoy the beautiful Chinese fishing nets play. There are some restaurant near to the shore itself and don't forget to taste the local snacks and juices on the way to beach.
  • I don't think I need to provide / share any feedback for this place. First of all it is in God's own country and one of my favourite place. Awesome experience I had with my family. Just go for it, enjoy with family and come back.
  • The best location in cochin for relaxation at any time. This beach is very lengthy and dangerous also only few areas we can enjoy waves. Pathway near the beach is lengthy so any body can choose this location for an awesome walk. Most of the Malayalam films and albums making here because of the beauty of this place. And we can buy fresh fish from here
  • This place needs to be maintained well or else will loose its charm. There is a walking path built by the authorities which is filled with small shops. A good place to spend the evenings. The main attraction of the beach is a series of Chinese fishing nets along the shores.
  • I had visited Fort Kochi Beach on various occasions and my last visit was during last December, while I have had an official programme at Coast Guard Training Centre.The Fort Kochi Beach is a very good center of attraction of tourists from foreign countries and we will come across many of them during our visits.Since the Kochi Port is situated nearby we can see many vessels moving to and fro, apart from the usual panoramic views of the beach.Cleanliness and day to day upkeep of the Beach area has to be given predominant importance by the authorities.Unless very serious move in this regard is taken it is likely to cause diminishing effect in the importance of this beautiful place.
