Club Mahindra Cherai is a beach destination like none other. Situated on Vypin island, Kochi, it is framed by swaying coconut palms and bordered by rice paddies, but it’s also sandwiched between the Arabain sea and the backwaters of Lake Poyil. Where there’s this much water to enjoy, there’s bound to be fish aplenty. Therefore, fishing in lake Poyil is one of the most leisurely things to do in Kerala.

Lake Poyil is situated just a stone's throw away from the main beach, where a narrow strip of land separates the sea and the backwaters. The beach is famous as it is dotted with huge Chinese fishing nets that are operated by fishermen and have become a tourist attraction.  However, there's a catch if you want to go fishing in lake Poyil. You’ll have to wake up bright and early as soon as the rooster crows and the rafts of ducks that call the backwaters home begin to quack.

Don’t worry about the gear, Club Mahindra Cherai has got you covered. Grab a rod and walk through the morning mists rising from the tranquil waters of the lake. Accompanying you are the traditional fishermen, who have been fishing in lake Poyil, casting their nets in the hopes of getting lucky. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or novice enthusiast, the waters are teeming with the famous Karimeen (Pearlspot), Mullets and Tilapia. If you’re lucky you might also score a magnificent Barramundi or Croaker that wandered accidentally into the brackish waters.

If you don’t catch any fish while you’re out on the lake, don’t worry. You won’t come home empty handed. The spectacular view, the sounds and the experience of fishing on the lake will give you memories to last for a lifetime. What’s even better? When you return, you can partake of some of the freshest seafood at Club Mahindra Cherai, all washed down with some freshly tapped toddy. With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad!
