Being just a km/two from the Shankumugham beach, this is the abandoned old port. With so safety measures(grills) around, we need to careful and kids need to be taken care of every moment. Also, avoid this location in the late evenings to avoid any incidents. The panaromic view is fantastic and you get a little deep access to the sea,... More

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
