Tourist spots near Munambam Beach Kochin kerala

Situated at the northern end of Cherai Beach, Munambam beach (Muziris Golden Beach) is where the River Periyar flows into the Arabian Sea. It is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the views, and watch local fishermen in their traditional canoes and colourful boats. The stunning sunset forms the classic backdrop and provides marvellous inspiration to any keen photographer.

Munambam Beach have been made due to a “Pulimuttu” which was constructed in the area. According to the scientfic report, it is due to this that the flow of the waters had changed, paving way for the formation of a new beach in the area.

Pulimuttu is the local name of the 1 km long bridge made of stone stretching in to sea. It is made by piling stones like a pathway to sea. Munambam beach must be familiar to some, since it is situated close to the very famous Cherai Beach. It is the northern tip of the Vypeen island and surrounded by Periyar River at the east & Arabian sea the west.

Beautiful chinese fishing nets also adorn the beautiful shores filled with fine grained sand. The ocean stole the fine grains from Cherai beach and deposited them in the shores of Munambam over the years. If you are a little lucky enough you can also spot dolphins in the waters.
