Their is a small walking lane guarded from the tides by chunks of rocks. This picture of the sunset is taken from their. Have to walk through this to reach the small beach. After the Tsunami the area of Beach is a little reduced. A problem that needs urgent attention of the authorities is the pollution done by weeds all over the beach. Water Hyacinth weeds are all over the beach and tourists often complaints that is a little disturbing about this place. But if you are in Cochin as a tourist, you should not avoid this sunset.
