Vypeen Island is the relaxing getaway place for Kochi offering long and mostly quiet beaches as well as backwaters, a large choice of hotels and many restaurants of different categories. We went for two extra days and it was worth it.

This island is accessible by ferry from Ernakulam and Fort Kochi and Mattancherry. Extremely serene and beautiful place. So very well maintained and clean. It has an ancient church. Also the chinese fishing nets.
