Visit the beach during the early hours of the day, it’s less crowded then. The beach is clean and perfect for a swim. The only concern is that the changing room and the shower opens a bit late. But on a whole, this is a great spot.

Take a boat ride on the backwaters of Kochi. The Chinese fishing nets found at Kochi are unique to the area and make for a very popular attraction. This ride offers the visitors a glimpse of exotic birds, squirrels, jackals etc. The mangroves here are nesting places of a large number of local and migratory birds.

This beautiful church is one of the oldest churches in India. It was built in 1505 by the Portuguese. Later, it was destroyed by the Dutch and then totally demolished by the British in the 18th century. This second Cathedral again was built by the Portuguese Bishops, from 1887 to 1905.

This is again a very old church in Kochi. Its architecture is plain and simple. However, this church holds its own history. The tombstone of “Vasco da Gama” makes it worth visiting.
