“Wherever you go, you take yourself with you..”– Neil Gaiman
My Route –> Kazhakuttom –> MenamKulam –> Veli – Perumathura Road –>Muthalapozhi Port(Around 14KMS/30 Minutes journey)
I visited this beautiful destination in October 2017. This is relatively a new tourist destination in Trivandrum, getting a lot of attention these days.
This is one of the few bridges in Kerala, from which you can see the sea on one side and backwaters on the other side.
There is also a small Fishing Port, from where you can buy some good and fresh Fish.
There is enough parking space available and its free of cost. Parking is available on both sides of the Bridge.
The beach is relatively neat and clean.
This is a good place for a weekend evening drive, especially for the People in Trivandrum/Kazhakuttom. Please note that the Veli-Perumathura Road is pretty straight but doesn’t have much width.
There is also Boating service available in the near by Back waters. Rates are around 150 INR per person for a 30 min ride. There is also a 3 hour package costing 6k INR.
The sun set view from the beach is very nice.
Enroute, you can also visit Maryanad Fish harbor. Another place where you can get good varieties of Fish at better rates.
Foodies: If you would like to taste some Sea food, you can visit ‘Ameen Restaurant’ enroute. I personally was not happy with the cleanliness of the dining space in the restaurant. Anyway, you can try a parcel from this place.
A WhatsApp video mentioning about the sea food varieties of this restaurant had gone Viral. So if you would like to taste the food, you can visit this restaurant enroute to Muthalapozhi.
