Vellayani Lake, Kovalam Reviews - Write a Review

  • For those quiet and quaint evenings, I would suggest you to go here and spent the evening. There is a chai place nearby. So you can sip to hot tea and listen to the birds chirping and gaze at the evening sky.

  • Awesome place to chill out in the evenings, Sundays are a bit crowded though, fresh lake fish is also available to buy, for commuting having a vehicle is easier, though this falls under a bus route

  • A very good view of vast lake which is fully laid on with lotus

  • Beautiful place to visit in Thiruvananthapuram, this lake also known as the largest fresh water lake in Trivandrum. Main highlight is road crossing the lake and can do fishing on the road side.

  • Nice view of Nature... Amazing climate
