Busiest fishing harbour

A fishing village 2 km south of Kovalam & 18 Km from Trivandrum, Vizhinjam is a natural port and one of the busiest fishing harbours in the district is all set to become the biggest shipping port of the region. & its near to the Jama Masjid.

One of the busiest fishing harbours

A fishing village 2 km south of Kovalam, Vizhinjam is a natural port and we can reach the harbor driving down from the Vizhinjam town through the narrow concrete road. The sight of numerous country boats lying side by side is a marvelous sight. On the other side the water sprays on us when the waves lash the sea wall built to control the intensity of the waves. Vizhinjam is one of the busiest fishing harbors in the district and it is all set to become the biggest shipping port of the region.
