How To Reach Cherai Beach

Kochi is home to a number of activities for tourists to enjoy. Perhaps the most enjoyable/unique activity available here is watching dolphins at Cherai beach. Children as well as adults will enjoy watching dolphins in action on this beach. This is what makes this beach one of the greatest tourist delights. Cherai beach is located on on the north side of Vypeen island and is cradled in the lap of a picturesque natural panorama. Since the dolphins are a little distance from the main beach, tourists will have to take a boat to get there. There are multiple ways to reach this place and for those interested in watching dolphins at Cherai beach, they are listed below.

Cherai beach is 22 kms from the Cochin International airport and about 26 kms from Ernakulam railway station, both of which are the nearest hubs of transport welcoming visitors into the area. Vypeen island is now thankfully connected by road and as such, it is possible for tourists to take cabs/autos right to Cherai beach itself.  The option to reach Vypeen by boat/ferry is also available with ferries going often from Ernakulam High Court jetty as well as the Main boat jetty to Vypeen. From the Vypeen jetty, getting to Cherai by road will take roughly 40 minutes and there are buses, as well as smaller transport options available. This is a handy guide for anyone on how to reach Cherai beach dolphins and in doing so, you can make memories that last a lifetime.

Any of the seasons except monsoon are a good time to spot dolphins. Monsoon is a bad season as the boats cannot venture out in the rains. 

As dolphins cannot venture too close to the beach, the boats have to go a bit of a way out to the sea to actually be able to see dolphins. This means that it's an activity that will take at least 2-3 hours. 

Dolphin watching usually happens early in the morning, but it can be done at other times of the day as well. Dressing according to that is a good idea.
