Even the soft sands of the Fort Kochi beach breathes old world charm. The first European township in India ravished by Traders and Navigators from the 11th century is still a hot cake on International Tourism Itinerary. The beach offers the stunning view of an estuary. It is the meeting point of the Vembanad Lake and the Arabian Sea. The sea is not advisable forswimming, however the sunset view is breath-taking. But what brings in tourists is the 11th century introduced Chinese cantilever fishing nets which are human powered. The mechanism of this rock and teakwood made is fascinating. If you don’t mind in tipping the fisher folk, perhaps you could join in with them for some action.
