Lagoon to Beaches for a Vacation?
Kochi, popularly known as the “Queen of Arabian Sea”, flaunts one of the finest natural harbors of the world. This city in the south Indian state of Kerala was the center of the world spice trade for many centuries. Today, it is among the top tourist destinations of Kerala. This spice city derives its name from the Malayalam word Kochazhi, which means a small lagoon.
The Chinese fishing nets (Cheena vala) are unique to Cochin. The traders from the court of the Chinese ruler Kublai Khan, introduced them in the 13th century. Fishermen use these ancient massive nets to earn their livelihood. The nets dot a whole stretch of the coast along Fort Kochi and Vypeen.
A stroll along the beach in the sunset, with Cheena vala and sailing ships in the background, is a memorable experience. The European styled bungalows dot the shoreline, while small stalls that cook and serve delicious traditional cuisines are established along the coastal stretch.
