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.

Just walk on the 200+m long Valiyathura Pier at Vallakadavu and experience sea breeze, a enjoy an unlimited view of the Arabian sea and Thiruvananthapuram coastline. In its heydays, the Pier served sea-faring vessels very well, now it is just a structure that affords a pleasant viewpoint away from city sights.

The government is embarking on a massive project to ensure there is docking of vessels at the pier and it will ensure a great site in near future. Now it is very easy to visit this location and on your way to the airport from the city you can visit. Pls ask your cab/auto driver to do that....
