Chinese Fishing Nets, Kochi (Cochin)

When in Kochi, make a short stop at Fort Kochi to admire Chinese Fishing Nets, representing an authentic fishing method and a landmark of the city. Although their name suggests Chinese heritage, the nets probably originate from Portuguese settlers who had colonies in Southern China. The unusual nets are fixed on bamboo or teak pillars and are lowered into the sea. Take a walk along the beach to admire the famous Kochi vista of the large, hammock-like nets appearing to float in mid-air, or purchase some of the fresh seafood being pulled out of the sea.

  • While the Chinese nets are beautiful,the area to approach them is dirty. If looking from far,they are excellent. You can also join the fishermen in hauling the catch.  more »

  • You can enjoy the sunset at this place. Really beautiful. One of the few places having these type of fishing nets. They are operational. Fishermen will show you how it works and also you can buy freshly caught fish from them. The place is easily accessible through buses and even ferries. The place has a walkway surrounded by huge trees. The place is colorful with vendors having beautiful products.
  • Had visited during an off-season period and the crowds were very less A quiet and calm place. Maintained well with clean surroundings. Some fishermen allow you onto the main fishing area, but do confirm before entering. Several local eateries and tea shops available. Definitely worth a visit, can spend almost an hour here.
