Its the place for the brave hearts, stepping into the pier is like hanging on a bridge feeling it may go down, the upkeep by the local authorities is lacking, the governments hardly care on safety and related issues. Not a great place to step in and check out..local fishing community and some youngsters try the stunt here....

In between kovalam & shankumugam beach. Old pier, gives the feeling of being in the middle of sea. Stay for few minutes & you can see local guys catching fish with just a hook. Explore if you have a fishing rod and enjoy the waves and a good catch

Having not gone to any kind of pier ever before, I enjoyed the very first time I entered this and it was a night. There was a mystery surrounding you, you feeling like you are into the sea..likewise. Feeling enthralled, the second time I came here, I was almost disgusted by the poor state the pier is in, which wasn't... More

This is just like any pier anywhere. You get the feel of the sea all around which is a fantastic experience by itself. It is supposed to be full of history but that is not true. The original pier which was the major import point of the erstwhile Travancore had collapsed long back and the pier which we see now... More

not very safe as it has been ill-maintained. Avoid visiting this place when sea is rough. Nothing else to do other than enjoying the sea and the sky

Have been to this many times in my life. Seeing my rating, don't thing that it is an engineering marvel or something. It's just an old pier in appearance but I feel this place is the best place to go with friends or alone to enjoy the cool breeze and to get a good view of the sea.. now its... More

Disused pier in total disrepair. Lots of large holes through which you may slip into the sea below. Very dangerous. Yet there are intrepid souls who go to the unprotected end of the pier to take photographs of the wonderful sunset. Some intrepid anglers too can be seen. Keep away.
