"Colourful place"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The fishing harbour is an amazing place to see as the fishing boats land and it is so colourful. Adani is building large port at vizhinjam but if you go now you can see vast area which is under construction. But this is a must see place if you are near vizhinjam. I enjoyed the place.

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"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Jul 7, 2015
A fishing village 2 km south of Kovalam, Vizhinjam is a natural port and we can reach the harbour driving down from the Vizhinjam town through the narrow concrete road. The sight of numerous country boats lying side by side is a marvellous 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 harbours in the district and it is all set to become the biggest shipping port of the region.
