Location

Kerala

Kerala is blessed with a unique set of geographical features that have made it one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Asia. A long shoreline with serene beaches, tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters, lush hill stations, and exotic wildlife, are just a few of the wonders that await you once you cross over to the other side.

And what's more, each of these charming destinations is only a two-hour drive from the other - a singular advantage no other place on the planet can offer. Kerala prides itself on being the flag bearer for not just how a culture can respect its past but also march forward with growth and progress as well. Hundred percent literacy, world-class healthcare systems, India's lowest infant mortality, and highest life expectancy rates are among a few of the milestones that the people of the state are extremely proud of.

Cochin

Cochin is arguably the ideal starting point for exploring the diversity and beauty of Kerala. With the best places to visit in Cochin, it has been rated among the top three tourist destinations by the World Travel and Tourism Council. The backwaters of Kerala can especially be experienced through the waterways flowing across Cochin in streams and lagoons. Such places have now been converted into picnic and fishing spots where visitors can boat through the water and stop midway on an isolated camp for some private time with nature.

Cherai Beach

Around two dozen kilometers from the industrial district of Ernakulam and to the side of the Vypeen Island lies every swimmer’s paradise, Cherai Beach. It is a favorite haunt of those looking for a relaxing swim with the backdrop of coconut groves being the added incentive. It provides a wonderful view of the famous Chinese Fishing Nets as well. The nearby shacks provide you with fresh cuisine that fills you up perfectly after a delightful swim. The seashells found here are unique and one often runs into dolphins in this area. It is the ideal blend of both the backwaters and the sea. Today it is among the most visited beaches in Kerala with a view that make it near impossible to tear yourself away once you get there.
