  • Quiet and peaceful. The place showcases Portuguese architecture and is pretty. Awesome for a morning walk, multiple shops selling local art and crafts are peppered all over the place. The entire neighbourhood is like a tiny European colony with an Indian touch to it.
  • Lots of ornaments & fish shops. very small beach. No sand it is mud. Bad smell, dirty water. Tiny tide. Not suitable for family. Wondered how this much crowd gathered here.
  • What a view of the skyline and Chinese fishing nets. must visit place. Crowded generally but has been maintained well.
  • Kochi, the commercial capital of Kerala, the last port of Vasco Da Gama, where you will find synagogues, mosques, churches and temples side by side, is a place with a fascinating history. The huge cantilevered fishing net, the Chinese fishing nets, seen here is a legacy of its spellbinding past. The nets, set up on teak and bamboo poles, were brought by one of the first visitors to the Malabar Coast, the traders from the court of Kublai Khan. An ideal place to watch fishermen use these nets is the Vasco da Gama square, a narrow promenade along the beach. The square, which has numerous stalls serving fresh delicious seafood, tender coconut and so on, is also perfect for a nice, relaxed evening.
  • Near fort Kochi beach. Nice for an evening stroll. Fun place during december due to the carnival and new year celebrations.

Where to stay in Kochi (Cochin)

Kochi offers abundant hospitality options, including a dense collection of international five-star hotels. Travelers on a budget can explore the selection of modest but impeccable homestays and guesthouses in the quieter neighborhoods just outside the central tourist area of Fort Cochin; these make great places to meet local hosts and fellow travelers. If you can spend a bit more, a number of boutique hotels in converted European-style mansions offer individual charm, and eco-villages and resort or retreat establishments outside the city center come with full wellness, spa, and culinary packages.
