The Veli Tourist Village lies where the Arabian Sea meets the Veli Lake provides for unique picnicking and boating opportunities. Visitors can hire paddleboats or pedal boats as they wish.
Visitors can also have a nice picnic, roam the gardens, and choose to employ boats for the entire duration of the trip. The feel and view of the place are unique, considering it is merely 12 kilometers from the Thiruvanthapuram, the capital city. Children are known to have lots of fun with the speedboat ride across the waters or to climb the sculptures here. A separate floating café and Children's Park run by Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) is an added incentive to visit this unique village.Places nearby:
