Poochakkal is a small island close to the Kerala Backwaters in Kerala, India. Until the 2006 Kerala Assembly Elections, Poochakkal was part of the Cherthala LAC. After delimitation from the 2011 elections, it became a part of Aroor LAC.
Poochakkal is located about 8 miles (14 km) from Cherthala, about 5 miles (8 km) from Vaikom, 12 miles (20 km) from Vytilla Hub and 15 miles (25 km) from Ernakulam.
The island economy was based on a water transportation system. Its water canal connects the eastern and western parts of Vembanadu Lake. The Poochakkal Market is one of the largest marketplaces in northern Cherthala.
