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.

  • Awesome view, can see how fisherman catch fish using Chinese fishing net. Long walk way with multiple type of foods and snacks stalls. One of the main tourist spot.
  • Awesome place to spend time with friends and loved ones. Beach is very nice with Chinese fishing nets adding beauty! Only drawback is we humans litter the place very badly, plastic bottles everywhere, even in the sea water! If we humans could act good towards protecting our own home, it will be better place than heaven
  • One of the main attractions in Fort Kochi. It's really nice to sit and watch the sea during evening hours. You get to see and meet a lot of tourists. You can also get some great seafood around here. One of my favorite evening hangouts.
  • Nice beach with an awesome view of the sunset and waves. Good place to visit in the evening hours. There is a long walkway and sitting area from where we can enjoy the beauty of the beach.
  • Beautiful place to spend your time in Kochi with plenty of eateries selling local delicacies and loads of recreational facilities. The sea might be rough due to the constant movement of huge ships and vessels and is not suitable for diving or swimming. The boat ride across the harbour gives you impeccable views of the Marine drive of Kochi, some ancient Portuguese palaces along with some huge commercial vessels. The sunset at this beach is one of the sights that one would not like to miss
