Cherai, Kerala
Located 25 kms from Kochi, the pristine, shallow Cherai beach is loved for its unique confluence of backwaters on one side and sea on the other. Boating on the backwaters in Kerala is an amazing experience, and Cherai intoxicates you with its serene backwaters, seductive beaches, charming exotica, delicious cuisine, swaying coconut lagoons, and lush paddy fields. The calm seawater makes Cherrai one of the top 10 beach cities in India for swimming. If you are lucky, you may even spot dolphins at Cherai.
