Munambam Beach (Muziris Golden Beach)

Cherai Beach

Situated at the northern end of Cherai Beach, Muziris Golden Beach popularly known as Munambam Beach, is a perfect place to enjoy your weekend. This stunning beach is in the village of Munambam which is a fishing harbour located at a distance of 5kms from Cherai and 30kms from Kochi. It is the place where river periyar joins the Arabian Sea and one can enjoy the spectacular view of sunset, watch local fishermen in their traditional canoes, fishing and canoe rides. The beach filled with fine grained sand, is adorn with numerous Chinese fishing nets. It is one of the few places where one can see dolphins.

Munambam Beach seemed to have come up due to a Pulimuttu (a 1 km long bridge made of stone stretching in to sea) which was constructed in the area. According to a scientific 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. 

In 2004, the beach was struck by the tsunami and the area was renovated by the tourism department. To protect the harbor mouth, two ramparts are constructed into the sea to about half kilometer using granite stones and concrete blocks.
