Since the backwaters beside the Cherai Beach is well known for its scenic view and as the sea can also be seen from the backwaters ride, many people book resorts where they get longer time enjoying the view and will help the tourists in taking the best pictures at the best spot. Dolphins are also sighted quite frequently at the Cherai beach, therefore, various boat ride early in the morning are organised every now and then for the tourist. If you are lucky enough you might see a group of dolphin playing around in the sea.
Since the beach is located 25 km away from the Kochi city, only a limited number of people who are staying in the resorts nearby visit this beach. Therefore the crowd at this beach would be less than the crowd on other beaches. It is also cleaner compared to the other beaches in Kochi or nearby beaches. The Cherai beach is also surrounded by end number of palm trees and coconut trees, making it the perfect backdrop for pictures and videos.
