Stretching into the ocean, the Valiyathura Sea Bridge has seen much history and is a part of old Kerala worth seeing. Travellers to the region in search of a comfortable Kerala resort from which to set off on their excursions can stay at Poovar Island Resort. This 3 star hotel in Kerala is within easy reach of the capital Trivandrum and offers a range of contemporary comforts too.
Once playing an important part in the state’s sea trade, the Valiyathura Sea Bridge can be found near the Trivandrum International Airport. Stretching to a length of around 214 metres, this landmark was originally constructed in 1947 though it had to be subsequently repaired and renovated. Though the bridge has lost much of its grandeur it is still a popular place for locals to gather. A visit to Valiyathura Sea Bridge will give you an opportunity to view local fishermen, while the sight and sound of the waves crashing against the pier also provides a relaxing way to spend an evening.
