Very nice and romantic place within 10 km from the main city

Only 10 km from the main city of Tribandam frequent bus services are available. Only 5 rupees ticket for entry and boating including speed boat service is available and charge is very reasonable. Snacks and Icecream available at floating restaurant managed by price is very cheap. Within 5 Minutes walk one can reach the beach of great Arabian sea. From where sunset will be memorable for ever. Actual nature lovers who are searching for a romantic as well as verging place Veli tourist place is ideal for them. Hope no one will be disheartened after visiting Veli tourist village.

A place of interest

The places of interest are as shown. It will take some time to see and visit Padmanabha Temple. I recommend that you should plan minimum 4 hours to see the beauty of art work. Food and mobile, is not allowed inside. You should wear dhotis and you cannot carry shirts in your hand. Ladies should wear dhoti, even if they are using churidar.

Perfect place for family picnic

We visited Veli tourist village in the end of Aug 2015. The tourist village is situated just 1 km from Kochuveli Railway Station and 10 km from Trivandrum Railway Station. Trivandrum airport lies around 6 km from the tourist village. The place is very quiet and clean and one can spend number of hours. There is a nominal entry fee. This is the place where Veli Lake/backwater meets the ocean. Horse riding along the beach and boating in backwater is also available on payment basis. There is a floating restaurant in case one feels hungry. Overall it's a perfect picnic spot for the family.

A good spot for kids - ideal for picnic, games on beach

Convenient to reach by your own vehicle, this place is good to visit on a cast day or in the evenings. There is serenity in the green park around, few shady trees, attractions for kids, and after a good walk you get to the beach. You'll find some game and food shacks not to miss the ice cream, if you wish to watch the beach sitting. A stroll on the beach is good to the eyes. The sea is rough so just forget about swimming or playing in the water. 2-3 hours is good enough for this location.

Good beach but not for bathing

Good beach with an attached garden cum recreational space. Not lot of people visit this beach, therefore you can spend lot of time there. Be aware of sun tanning your skin. The water depth becomes steep rapidly and the waves are usually high, so don't even think about bathing.

One of the best place near Thiruvananthapuram to spend an evening

Veli Tourist Village located at a distance of 8 km from Thiruvananthapuram, is a prominent tourist attraction in Kerala state. The Tourist Village is really striking and popular picnic spot that attracts a good number of domestic and foreign visitors.It is renowned because of its tranquility as well as attractiveness, and also the activities that it offers. We can find the Veli Lake that meets the Arabian Sea at this place and one of the main attractions is that we can enjoy a paddle boat ride in the lake or hire a speed boats at this place. Other attractions of Veli Tourist Village are a floating bridge for crossing the lake, a floating restaurant that gives us a marvellous assortment of food items to pamper our taste buds. We had a walk through the causeway, the golden sand by the side of the lake and kids loved the place because of the options for many activities.
