Have you ever heard of a land where aegis and leisure go hand in hand, where you can tilt your head over a canon and bring your vision in perfect symmetry with the horizon, where you can wander around the colossal walls of a fort and still feel relaxed. Plan a holiday trip to Kochi and you can experience chivalry, romance, leisure, sun-kissed sands, Portugal, Judaism - all in one go. It is to Kochi's credit that the city welcomed, endured, survived and eventually triumphed over all those who were lured by these undoubtedly bewitching shores. Take up Kerala tours to see the Fort Kochi beach in Kerala.

Kochi Fort - An Impeccable Blend of Fine European Culture

As you will walk through the sinewy streets of the town towards the beach, you will simply wonder about the eternal sonance of the ebullient sea, always within your earshot but perpetually imperceptible to the eye. You can see stamps of silver sands, carelessly scattered on the grounds, ratifying a sea nearby, but where? And now when you are so close to the parapet, a visit to the first European fort built on Indian soil is a fine idea, isn't it? Perched regally on petrified time, Fort Kochi is not just a quaint township or a traveller's delight. It is a perfect poetry of folklore handed down the ages, a melting pot of culture that has emerged from three invasions, and a lifestyle that prides itself on its natural ardour to savour life, much the same way you would do about your holiday vacation in Kerala. The Portuguese made it in 1530, the Dutch played with it from 1663 and ultimately the British East India Company wrested the grand creation away in 1795. Housing the first European township and anchored on one of the finest natural harbours of the State, Fort Kochi over the chapters of history played the fascinating roles of a major military base, shipbuilding centre, a cultural hub, and a centre for Christianity, all in one. Want to enjoy beach vacations in Kerala? Cochin beach holidays on Kerala beaches along with the desire to see the famous attractions can anly be basked on Fort Kochi in Kerala.

Your next stop should definitely be on the roof of the colosseum. Feel the kiss of the sea breeze blowing the hairs on your forehead, such a caring act you will never experience anywhere. No doubt you will wonder, how far out to the sea the aroma of spices had wafted, to lure merchant ships from three continents of the world. Touch the silent sentry - a Portuguese canon - preserved on the rooftop, pointing straight to the point where the blue waters of the sea moisten the crimson-red surface of the sky.

Romance In The Sands

And now when you have experienced the eternal, it is now time to embrace the ephemeral. Walk on the pristine sands of Kochi, bedecked with long fishing boats, a few carpets of green and flocks of ravens and drongos perching high on the crow's nest. Get close to the famed Chinese fishing nets, which line the lagoon's north-west shore transforming into a heavenly sight under the cobalt blue sky. Meet a fortune teller and let him forecast your visit in this magical land or shed a few rupees and get a fine entertainment from an acrobat or snake-charmer. Let your kids run across the sands, while you enjoy a amazing sight of amber-hued setting sun in the evening, before returning to your place of stay. Plan your holiday trip on the New Year eve to attend the colourful Cochin Carnival at the beach side of Fort Kochi. The famous attractions of Fort Kochi beach in Kerala is the ultimate holiday idea.
