During my recent visit to Thiruvananthapuram, I was keen to visit Veli Tourist Village.
Veli Tourist Home is located amidst the lush green coconut groves and backwaters of Thiruvananthapuram, in the Veli Tourist Village, bordered by the Arabian Sea and the Veli Lagoon. It is a great picnic spot, with a beautiful garden and facilities for water sports.
There is also a waterfront park which has a floating bridge that connects to the Shanghumukham Beach.
The Veli Tourist Village is the place where the lake merges with the Arabian sea. The lagoon here is separated from the sea by a narrow sand bar.
It is a nice place for tourists with young children to spend an afternoon. There are lots for the kids to do. Children can also enjoy a horse ride.
Thiruvananthapuram Airport is just 3 kms away, and the railway station is just 8 kms away.
