Located at a distance of 30 kms from Kochi, Andhakaranazhi Beach is an extension of the tiny village of Andhakaranazhi. The virgin beach is still noncommercialized and unexploited from tourism and a well-kept secret of the city. It is an azhy or a shoal which is a naturally formed ridge formed underwater and rises to the surface and is mostly used to regulate the inflow or outflow of water via two motor-operated shutters installed to the north and the south of the beach.
Also, its distance from the city makes it a perfect serene spot from the pell-mell of the city. You can find fishers at work, and their vast nets strewed all over the shores. Visit this to experience nature in its raw form with immaculate sands, clean waters and beautiful coastline. Water levels are erratic in the region and tourists are advised to be careful while exploring.
