beaches in Kerala can compare with the cleanliness and beauty
of Cherai beach, situated at a distance of 35 kms from Cochin.
Affectionately called the princess of the Arabian Sea this 10
kilometer long beach is becoming the favourite destination of
the tourists with each passing day.This beach also occupies the
unique position of being the only beach where dolphins are sighted.
The tourism department has laid much emphasis on the development
of this beach and has taken up the task of widening and beautifying
it to suit the convenience of the tourists.
From the very ancient times Cherai had been known as the destination
to enjoy the best of sea food delicacies to be watered down with
the country liquor called Toddy. Cherai is easily accessible from
every part of Kerala and can be reached by taking either a boat
ride from High court Junction to Vypeen and from there to Cherai
or the better option being to take the bus direct to Vypeen from
Ernakulam city and from there to Cherai. Cherai is only a 40 minutes
drive from Vypeen.
The unique position enjoyed by Cherai in the tourism map of Kerala
stems from the fact that it is strategically located. One side
borders the Arabian sea and the Vembanad Kayal ( Backwaters) borders
the other side. The beach frontage and the backwaters frontage
has given Cherai such magnificent scenic beauty that it is doubtful
if such beauty spots exist any where else in Kerala. Added to
this is the chance to view the village life of a gentry where
prawn farming is resorted to at every corner. The sight of coconut
trees caressing in the winds and the long line of paddy fields
have all made Cherai the favourite destination of globe trotters.
the latest tourist craze in Gods own country and undoubtedly with
some genuine reason....... More Details: www.cherai.in
