Veli

Veli Tourist Village lies at the mouth of Veli Lake with the Arabian Sea, and is a popular picnic spot in the Thiruvananthapuram district. Separated by a sandbar from the sea, Veli lagoon is the centre of this tourist village. Located hardly 10 km from the capital city, it is easily accessible by bus, auto or private vehicles. A bountiful garden is situated at the southern banks of Veli lagoon, and a floating bridge connects the garden with the beach. The tourist destination features a calm pool, children’s park, horse rides, pedal boating and floating café. The garden is a hotspot of activities. Children will have a lot of fun here with swings, slides, see-saws, merry-go-rounds, playground climbers and spring riders. The landscaped garden has beautifully laid out walkways, comfortable seating arrangements and attractive sculptures. The conch sculpture by Kanayi Kunhiraman is a stand-out item at the tourist village. Boating is a common activity undertaken by tourists here. Travelling through the backwaters of Veli and Akkulam amid coconut groves and thick vegetation is a memorable experience.  There are a couple of vendors offering food items and gaming options. The solar-powered miniature train is a new addition to the tourist village. The journey along a 2.5-km stretch will enable tourists to enjoy the true beauty of Veli. The train is modelled after the vintage steam locomotive, and the station house is also designed in a traditional style. The train has three bogies, and can accommodate around 45 people on board at a time.

Veli Tourist Village

Beyond expectations: exploring veli tourist village.

Tucked away in the embrace of Thiruvananthapuram’s natural beauty lies a haven of relaxation and adventure that promises an unforgettable escape. Welcome to Veli Tourist Village, where the convergence of backwaters, beaches, and recreational facilities creates an enchanting experience that caters to every traveler’s desires.

A Coastal Retreat: Veli’s Backwaters and Beaches Veli Tourist Village offers a unique blend of backwater serenity and coastal charm. The meeting point of the Veli Lake and the Arabian Sea forms a picturesque estuary, where tranquil backwaters gently caress the sandy shores. The rhythm of the waves and the melody of the birds create an ambiance that instantly transports you to a world of tranquility.

Boating Bliss: Navigating the Backwaters One of the most captivating ways to experience Veli’s beauty is by taking a boat ride through its backwaters. You can choose from paddleboats, rowboats, or even speedboats, each offering a different perspective of the landscape. As you glide along the calm waters, you’ll be treated to stunning views of the surrounding greenery, mangroves, and the distant horizon where the sea meets the sky.

Leisure and Play: Veli’s Recreational Offerings Veli Tourist Village is not just a place for relaxation—it’s a hub of recreational activities for all ages. The floating bridge that connects the shores is a delight to walk on, offering panoramic views of the estuary and the distant sea. The well-maintained gardens provide a perfect setting for picnics, while the children’s park ensures that young visitors have their own space to explore and have fun.

Connecting with Nature: Mangrove Exploration Veli’s mangrove forests are a unique ecosystem that beckons nature enthusiasts and explorers. A stroll along the wooden walkways that traverse the mangroves allows you to get up close to these vital habitats. Keep an eye out for the diverse flora and fauna that call these mangroves home, creating an immersive experience that educates and inspires.

A Sunset to Remember: Evening Splendor at Veli As the day winds down, Veli Tourist Village offers a front-row seat to one of nature’s most captivating performances—the sunset. The sun’s descent casts a warm, golden glow over the waters, creating a scene that’s both breathtaking and tranquil. The sight of the sun dipping below the horizon, with hues of orange and pink painting the sky, is a moment of pure serenity.

In conclusion, Veli Tourist Village is a testament to Thiruvananthapuram’s natural splendor and its ability to offer a diverse range of experiences. From the calming embrace of backwaters to the excitement of recreational activities, from mangrove exploration to witnessing the sun bid adieu in a blaze of colors, Veli captures the essence of a perfect getaway. So, when you find yourself in Thiruvananthapuram, don’t miss the opportunity to discover the hidden treasures that await at Veli Tourist Village.

Exploring a destination...

The joy of travel comes in exploring new things. Planting your feet somewhere you’ve never been before brings with it the rush of discovery and the joy of pushing back on the boundaries of your world.

But when one does arrive at that fresh frontier, there are ways better than others to begin your journey of discovery. Follow these steps and see the world with a new light.

• Discover a new city through a food tour. Food tour’s are the easiest way to take a tour, learn about the local delicacies, and the best of all, get great tips that aren’t just “local” tips for tourists, but sometimes, lessons for a lifetime too

• Use Public Transportation. When you are in a new city, you can possibly see places and people that you wouldn’t normally see when simply walking to the places that checks your list. Some buses or rails take you to parts of the city you wouldn’t get to see otherwise. Whilst using public transportation, just ensure that you are following the local norms and do remember to watch the locals!

• Find a local festival. Go beyond what other tourists might do while visiting a place. Look for the unique things you would want to do. Use social media or the local tourism website to find out what’s going on locally. You may have to move out of the center of the city to do some of the less popular but more unique things, so just keep that in mind!
