When in Kochi, make a short stop at Fort Kochi to admire Chinese Fishing Nets, representing an authentic fishing method and a landmark of the city. Although their name suggests Chinese heritage, the nets probably originate from Portuguese settlers who had colonies in Southern China. The unusual nets are fixed on bamboo or teak pillars and are lowered into the sea. Take a walk along the beach to admire the famous Kochi vista of the large, hammock-like nets appearing to float in mid-air, or purchase some of the fresh seafood being pulled out of the sea. By using our Kochi (Cochin) attractions planner, you can arrange your visit to Chinese Fishing Nets and other attractions in Kochi (Cochin).
Chinese Fishing Nets reviews
We had gone with our family. The fishing nets are lovely to watch. But not very hygenic. Recommended for the scenic beauty. more »
Very good attraction and a traditional way to catch fish. We have a net with bulb attached to its top which attracts fish, when the net is lifted we will get the fish in the net more »
You can enjoy the sunset at this place. Really beautiful. One of the few places having these type of fishing nets. They are operational. Fishermen will show you how it works and also you can buy freshly caught fish from them. The place is easily accessible through buses and even ferries. The place has a walkway surrounded by huge trees. The place is colorful with vendors having beautiful products.
Had visited during an off-season period and the crowds were very less A quiet and calm place. Maintained well with clean surroundings. Some fishermen allow you onto the main fishing area, but do confirm before entering. Several local eateries and tea shops available. Definitely worth a visit, can spend almost an hour here.
