Get a glimpse of traditional coastal life at Nattika beach
The thing that first grips you about Nattika beach, apart from that infinite beauty of the stretch, is the quiet. Your thoughts and conversations are disrupted only by the sounds of the sea in this
long, pristine, palm-fringed area that offers a peaceful setting for watching the sunset or having a picnic. Use your finger to write on the clean sand the first lines of that poem forming in your head. And it’s not just sun and sand; this picturesque beach, situated 25 km west of Thrissur town, gives a glimpse into the rural life of the local coastal fishing village. You can stay at a nearby hotel or resort and come down to watch as the fishermen set out at dawn in country boats or be there to catch the high-voltage atmosphere as they return to the shore by dusk with their daily catch. The majority of fishermen in Nattika beach use traditional fishing methods in country boats and catamarans.
