A bridge built in 2005 connects Vypin to the main land.Cherai Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Kerala borders the northern end of Vypin Island. There is a newly constructed walkway and several shops and restaurants. It’s a famous tourist spot. A brief 5-km drive will take you to the Pallipuram Fort, one of the first forts to be built by the Europeans in Kerala. A little further is Kottayil Kovilakam, where a Jewish synagogue, a church, a temple and a mosque co-exist in peaceful communal harmony in the same compound.
